Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Trying to factor by splitting the middle term Factoring 4n^25n6 The first term is, 4n2 its coefficient is 4 . The middle term is, 5n its coefficient is 5 . The last term, "the constant", is 6 Step1 : Multiply the coefficient of the first term by the constant 4 • 6 = 24

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What isn't clear? :) I'll be happy to explain it to you.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so when you multiply the coefficient of the first term do i muliply 4 tiimes neg 6 and 4 times  24 or just six

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We are trying to split the middle term because this is a trinomial. In trinomials, we need to do that so we can factor by grouping. Understand? :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Step2 : Find two factors of 24 whose sum equals the coefficient of the middle term, which is 5 . 24 + 1 = 23 12 + 2 = 10 8 + 3 = 5 That's it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes… but you won't always have that option. Most exams these days are going more towards short answer vs. multiple choice like the EOC in FL.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It isn't always about taking the easy way out. You must learn the process of how to do this at least. Plus it will take about the same amount of time.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Please learn the process with me. Distributing is primarily used to CHECK your answer at the end.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Also.. don't be put down that you were put into summer school. It's actually better for you because you get to review the concepts at your own pace. Don't you dare be dishearted. Everyone is different and learn differently. Be confident! :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Step4 : Add up the first 2 terms, pulling out like factors : 4n • (n2) Add up the last 2 terms, pulling out common factors : 3 • (n2) Step5 : Add up the four terms of step 4 : (4n+3) • (n2) Which is the desired factorization
