I'm trying to check my answer but it appears wrong based on what the book says. Factors by grouping.
24x^336x^2+72X108
my answer was : (2x3)(12x^2+36)
please help

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yours in incomplete. 12x + 36 can be factored further by pulling a gcf out

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.124X^336x^2+72X108 12x2(2X3)+36(2x3) (2x3)(12x2+36) ???? NOt sure what I did wrong Thanks in advance.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you didn't do anything wrong, it's just that there's another step. You have (2x  3)(12x² + 36) 2x  3 can't be factored anymore 12x² + 36 can have a gcf of 12 factored out

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So I need to factor my answer which I already had factor previously! So it's possible that once you have factor a problem your answer my still need to be factor a bit more. ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes.unless you get it in the most simplest form

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0remember in these cases you got to reduce the equation to the simplest form

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1would there had been another way to factor from the start or this would of been the only way which and I would just had to do the extra step at the end ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but my final answer would not match meaning I have a negative and a positive answer. For some reason I though that would be wrong ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The book says the opposite? = 12(2x3)(x2+3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a^33a^22a+6 my answer was way off even after changing the  to + and making the  2a to +(2a+6)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0answer will be (a^22)(a3)
