Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Factor completely 8m^3  12m^2 + 4m. I got 4 (2m^3  3m^2 + m)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well, first step, you should try factoring it out.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2lets see: \(\large\color{slate}{\displaystyle \sqrt{(3)^24\cdot2\cdot1}=\sqrt{98}=\sqrt{1}=1}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh no, this is gonna be difficult to choose who I give this medal too

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you're on the right track but you're not quite done yet notice how each of the terms in the parantheses still has m, right? you can factor out m

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yeah, your are not done. You can factor it more. (What I did just now, is the discriminant test)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0factor out 4m instead of 4.

SolomonZelman

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2factor out of 4m, and even then not done

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now you have 4m(2m^23m+1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright. I got 4m (2m^2  3m) is this correct?

SolomonZelman

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and as I demostrated with discriminant test, it is factorable

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2GOOD SO FAR. NOW, LAST STEP

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.22m^23m+1 => 2m^22mm+1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright, alright alright. Listen guys, I'm really getting overwhelmed with all of you trying to help. I appreciate you guys trying to help but I can't focus on so many people. So, I will focus on Solomon since he was the first to respond on this post. Sorry

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So we are at this point: 4m(2m^23m+1)

SolomonZelman

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2now, look at 2m^23m+1 alone. you can factor it, and I will give you a hint: rewrite it as 2m^22mm+1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright. so I got (2m+1) (m+1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, that ic correct.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Pro tip. It is easier to look at when the coefficients are positive.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You can take two negatives out..... it is a little bit strange to me the way you wrote it. What I meant to see was rather. \(\large 2m^23m+1\) \(\large 2m^22mm+1\) \(\large 2m(m1)m+1\) \(\large 2m(m1)1(m1)\) \(\large \color{red}{2m}(m1)+\color{red}{1}(m1)\) \(\large (2m1)(m1)\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I mean the way you did it is perfectly fine. As long as it is correct. But I am just letting you know my point of view from the side.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's just easier to manage without negative coefficients... nobody likes negative XD

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright, but the answer (2m1) (m1) isn't an option. Well, there is. But, there is a 4m in front of it. 4m(2m  1) (m  1)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Would I just go with that?

Plasmataco

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what are the options?

SolomonZelman
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, because you are factoring 4m(2m^23m+1)

SolomonZelman
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you are not factoring just the 2m^23m+1 I took a look at it alone, so that we can factor it, but the 4m does't go away.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright. Thanks guys! And Plasma, the options are 2m (4m2  6m + 2) 4 (2m3  3m2 + m) 4m (2m  1)(m  1) 4m (2m2  3m)

Plasmataco

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0go with that, we never dropped the 4m.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thanks guys! I appreciate the fact that you walked me through it Solomon! Sadly not a lot of people would be willing to walk me through these problems. But the ones that do are awesome!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I do this for the pleasure of helping people. plus, solomon told me to walk people through on problems XD

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I told you that? Have I? Well in my mind I was like "I hope he isn't giving out answers like many users here do" .... :) lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah, I appreciate that those users just straight up give me the answer. I also want to learn how to do the problem so I won't ask for help as often.
