Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you want to factor this you need to find the GCF

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0find GCF of 3 and 75 and GCF of y^3 and y^5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what number divides exactly into 3 and 75?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes 1 does but its not the greatest factor that divides into 3 and 75

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right the GCF is 3 what about y^3 and y^5 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y will but its not the greatest factor

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right! so GCF is 3y^3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now you need to divide 3y^3 into 3y5  75y^3 to find what goes into the parentheses

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i'll do the first part for you 3y^5 / 3y^3 = y^(53) = y^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you are almost right but 75 y^3 / 3y^3 = 25 not 25y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0correct is 3y^3(y^2  25)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that is it we have factored it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oops sorry y6  25 can be factored also  nearly missed that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y^2  25 is the difference of 2 squares y^2 and 25 are exact squares square root of y^2 is y and square root of 25 is 5 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the factors are 2 binomials with square roots in eachh and + in one binomial and  in the other y^2  25 = ( y + 5)(y  5)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0finally 3y^575y^3 = 3y^3(x + 5)(x  5)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03y^575y^3 = 3y^3(y + 5)(y  5)
