An expression is shown below:
3x^3y + 12xy  9x^2y  36y
Part A: Rewrite the expression so that the GCF is factored completely. Show the steps of your work.
Part B: Rewrite the expression completely factored. Show the steps of your work. (4 points)
Part C: If the two middle terms were switched so that the expression became 3x^3y  9x^2y + 12xy  36y, would the factored expression no longer be equivalent to your answer in part B? Explain your reasoning.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well to find the GCF we need to deal with the letters as well as the numbers  which letter is common to all 3 terms/
