i have another question after this
welshfella
  • welshfella
they will look like (y + a)(y + b) where the product AB will = -12 and a + b will equal -1
welshfella
  • welshfella
can you think of 2 numbers whose product is -12?
anonymous
  • anonymous
3 and 4
welshfella
  • welshfella
3nearl right 3 * 4 = 12 but we want -12
anonymous

-4 and 3
welshfella
  • welshfella
* nearly
welshfella
  • welshfella
ok that might be the ones we want do they add up to -1?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah is it the second optiion
welshfella
  • welshfella
we haven't got that far yet we need to factor the denominator next. yes a = 3 and b = -4 so the factors of the top of the fraction are (x + 3)(x - 4) now can you factor the denominator by the same method?

3 and 5
anonymous
  • anonymous
its the second option
welshfella
  • welshfella
right so we have (y + 3)(y - 4) ---------- (y + 3)(y + 5) y + 3 is common
welshfella
  • welshfella
yea second choice is correct
