FAN AND MEDAL
Part C: If the two middle terms were switched so that the expression became 3x3y  9x2y + 12xy  36y, would the factored expression no longer be equivalent to your answer in part B? Explain your reasoning. (3 points)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Part B: 3y(x^3+4x−3x^2−12) Factoring out GCF from first two terms gives : 3y(x(x^2+4)−3x^2−12) 3y(x^3+4x−3x^2−12) Factoring out GCF from first two terms gives : 3y(x(x^2+4)−3x^2−12) Factoring the GCF from last two terms gives : 3y(x(x^2+4)−3(x^2+4)) factoring out the (x^2+4) from the terms inside parenthesis gives : 3y(x^2+4)(x−3)
