Please help me figure out how to do this!
Which of the following is the correct factored form of the given equation?
4x2  11x + 6 = 0
Possible Answers:
(2x + 3)(2x + 2) = 0
(2x  3)(2x  2) = 0
(4x  3)(x  2) = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0foil is the easiest way to solve this as MrNood said. it means first, outer, inner, last just foil the answers and the right answer will be the same as the equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3if your bracket are (a+b) (c+d) then you multiply the F irst pair of numbers ac O utside pair ad I nside pair bc L ast pair bd then add them all together ac + ad + bc + bd

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3So write each pair of brackets like that Multiply the pairs For example the first one is (2x + 3)(2x + 2) So F irst pair is 2x * 2x O utside pair is 2x * 2 I nside pair is 3 * 2x L ast pair is 3 * 2 Add all those together and simplify, to see if they come out to be the same as the equation 4x^2  11x + 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3It's the first of the possible answers You need to do it for all the answers until you find the right one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay well that wasn't the answer. It says that the last one was correct...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I didn't say it was the answer  I said you need to do this method to all the options until you find which is correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3It seems that you replied much quicker than you could have done the suggestion above did oyu do this? F irst pair is 2x * 2x O utside pair is 2x * 2 I nside pair is 3 * 2x L ast pair is 3 * 2 Add all those together and simplify If so  show the steps you took

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3quote "I tried, but I can't understand. I just starting this unit, and its so hard. :(" It will remain hard until you actually try the methods required. Mostly maths appears 'hard' because of the notation and the formulas. Once you use them a few times their meaning becomes clear, and the 'difficulty' becomes a routine process to get the right answer. If you are just starting  then please try one or two attempts at multiplying the brackets using the FOIL method It will soon become a tool you can use in your future maths work
