Bill keeps a colony of honeybees on his property. He has created an expression to represent the number of honeybees that are in the colony t years after he decided to create the colony. The expression Bill created is -16t4 + 160t2 – 144. After deciding to create the colony, it took a fair amount of time to prepare before actually getting bees in his colony. After some time, the population in the colony started to decrease; eventually Bill lost his colony. b. Factor out a negative 1 from the expression using a bracket. Then rewrite the first term inside the bracket as the square of a term.

    factoring out a negative one would be -(16t4-160t2+144)

    then rewriting the first term would be -(4^2*t^2-160t2+144)
