Part A: Rewrite the expression so that the GCF is factored completely. (4 points)
Part B: Rewrite the expression completely factored. Show the steps of your work. (6 points)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A) 2x3y + 8xy  4x2y  16y looks like we can take out a 2y so 2y(x3 + 4x  2x2  8)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1B) 2y(x3 + 4x  2x2  8) group like this 2y (x3  2x2) + (4x8) then factor x^2 and 4 2Y x2(x2) +4(x2) factor out x2 (2y)(x2)(x2+4) C) what do you think??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I assume "2x3y + 8xy  4x2y  16y" means 2x³y + 8xy  4x²y  16y. If not, ignore my answer. Part A: 2y(x³ + 4x  2x²  8) Part B: 2y(x(x² + 4)  2(x² + 4)) = 2y(x  2)(x² + 4)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1See>> for A)) for the first part as we don't know what the values of x and y are, they are both variables the highest common factor can be any of the three 2y or (x2) or (x^2+4) but as you know (x2) is always less than (x^2+4) the GCF can only be 2y or (x^2+4) or (y or 2*(x^2+4))

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, the answer most probably cannot be determined, because the answer can be from any of those two.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for the second part >>> 2x^2y(x2) +8y(x2) => (x2)(2x^2y+8y) =>2y(x2)(x^2+4) was all >>> :) @mackenzieee I hope u r getting, what I am trying to say.
