Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I just want to put this all together so it won't be difficult for you for your reference: Pulling out like terms : 5.1 Pull out like factors : 3x2y2  xy2  2y2 = y2 • (3x2  x  2) Trying to factor by splitting the middle term 5.2 Factoring 3x2  x  2 The first term is, 3x2 its coefficient is 3 . The middle term is, x its coefficient is 1 . The last term, "the constant", is 2 Step1 : Multiply the coefficient of the first term by the constant 3 • 2 = 6 Step2 : Find two factors of 6 whose sum equals the coefficient of the middle term, which is 1 . 6 + 1 = 5 3 + 2 = 1 That's it Step3 : Rewrite the polynomial splitting the middle term using the two factors found in step 2 above, 3 and 2 3x2  3x + 2x  2 Step4 : Add up the first 2 terms, pulling out like factors : 3x • (x1) Add up the last 2 terms, pulling out common factors : 2 • (x1) Step5 : Add up the four terms of step 4 : (3x+2) • (x1) Which is the desired factorization

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0MATHEMATICAL FORMULAE Algebra 1. (a + b)2 = a2 + 2ab + b2; a2 + b2 = (a + b)2 − 2ab 2. (a − b)2 = a2 − 2ab + b2; a2 + b2 = (a − b)2 + 2ab 3. (a + b + c)2 = a2 + b2 + c2 + 2(ab + bc + ca) 4. (a + b)3 = a3 + b3 + 3ab(a + b); a3 + b3 = (a + b)3 − 3ab(a + b) 5. (a − b)3 = a3 − b3 − 3ab(a − b); a3 − b3 = (a − b)3 + 3ab(a − b) 6. a2 − b2 = (a + b)(a − b)
