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.
