Maria is attempting to factor the expression 2xy+24x-7y-84 In her first step, she rewrites the expression as 2x(y+12)+7(-y-12). Which of the following statements is true about Maria's work?
The first step is correct. She should continue to factor the expression.
She factored out a positive GCF in the second group of factors, but it should have been negative.
She factored out a negative GCF in the second group of factors, but it should have been positive.

can the polynomial below be factored into a perfect square ? if not select the answer that best describes why not
A. The x^2 coefficient does not permit the factoring
B. The x^2 coefficient does permit the factoring, but the x coefficient does not permit the factoring.
The constant value does not permit the factoring.
The polynomial may be factored into a perfect square.

YEA i got (7x-5)^2
That's a perfect square. (7x-5) is multiplied by itself
