Do you have a basic idea as to what to do?
Ok.. let's start off w/ the basics: You need to simplify this crazy expression by factoring out the GCF of this expression.
Do you know what "GCF" stands for?
greatest common factor
Correct ! So, what do you think would be the GCF of this expression?
Correct.. wow you know how to do this!! Do you know how to factor "2xy" w/ this expression? Or is there where you get stumped?
yeah i got lost right there
|dw:1436457892829:dw| This is how you factor it out.. basically dividing polynomials.
Is it clear?
no not really
From where? Ask me where you don't get it. :)
We need to factor OUT the GCF from the expression. By dividing.
I don't get why we are dividing. Like if it was x^2-x+25 Then it would be (x-5)(x+5)
Like im not used to dividing when factoring expressions
That is a trinomial... that's different :)
Wait, no. After factoring out the GCF, it doesn't go away.. you'll see what I'll do... before putting it into that final parenthesis, you need to factor out any GCF's you see
Do you see what I did there?
NOW I will be applying the factoring by trinomials method.
The "2xy(" off to the side will remain there.
so it would be 2xy(2x-3)(2x+5)
Thank you soo much! :)
Np! I love factoring haha
