Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'd start in factored form and then multiply to get the polynomial. It seems like you can write 2 different binomials and then use a monomial to be the GCF.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I can help you put them together once you make them up. They can pretty much be whatever you want. Do you know what binomials and monomials are?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes i do :]. Binomials is a polynomial with "2" terms. Minomials are polynomials that only have "1" term.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that's right. this question is literally asking you to make up 2 binomials and 1 monomial and then multiply them

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OH. Can i make one real quick and can you check to make sure i am correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(2a^2) * (2a^3+3a)*(4a+3a^2)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That works perfectly.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But it says: "Rewrite that polynomial in two other equivalent forms. Explain how each form was created."

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so that can be one of your forms

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Another form comes when you multiply everything together. Do you know FOIL?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It stands for First, Outer, Inner, Last and it helps with distribution for binomials. You multiply the terms together, then add them up. We're going to use it to multiply the 2 binomials. dw:1439422276593:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Or is descending order (just because it's neater), the binomial multiply to \[6a^5+8a^4+9a^3+12a^2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0does that make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes! Explain how each form was created.? What would i say for this part?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you made up the first one and we're still multiplying to get the second one.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now you just have to distribute the monomial \[2a^2(6a^5+8a^4+9a^3+12a^2)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.012a^7+16a^6+18a^5+24a^4?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, so that's your 2nd form

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For the 3rd one, factor out the GCF of all 4 terms

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is the GCF : ? ( Its in the attachment.)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It said create a polynomial with a GCF. The GCF is the lowest power of the variable multiplied by the largest number that goes into all coefficients. What's the biggest number the divides evenly into 12, 16, 18, and 24? What is the smallest power of a?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The thing you posted is the polynomial in expanded form. We're looking for the greatest common factor of all those terms

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The answer would be 4???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04 doesn't go into 18

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So thats my answer for GCF?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the GCF is \(2a^4\). You need to divide all the terms in \(12a^7+16a^6+18a^5+24a^4\) by \(2a^4\) to factor

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so now add them all up and write the GCF on the outside \[2a^4(6a^3+8a^2+9a+12)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0^that's what we had originally. We factored it to get a third form. Have you done factoring yet?
