Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yep... (x+(3)) and (x+(10))... does that make sense? a way to check is to see what values of x make the factors equal to 0. with (x3), what value of x makes the factor 0? with (x +(3)) what value of x makes the factor 0? is it the same value in both? if so, then the factors must be equivalent.
