um what

Im talkin to the rapper
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
It's basically factoring, thats why
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
And yeah, just some black dude ;P So, do you know basic factoring?
anonymous

Lol okay
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
kind of.. but im real bad at math lol especially dealing with fractions and factors
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Alright, let's take an square equation for example x^2 + 6x + 9 To factor it, the answer will be in the form of ( )( ), right? Since the x^2 is x times x, you can put one x in each of the parenthesis, to get: (x )(x ) Now, the second part, 6x, represents addition. The third part, 9, represents multiplication. So, can you think of two numbers that add to 6, and also multiplies to 9?
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
3+3= 6 3x3+ 9
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
i meant 3x3=9 lol
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Right, so 3 and 3. We can add that to the parenthesis (x 3)(x 3) Now all were missing is the operation sign. For factoring, the operation sign is always either + or -. Let's put a + in both for the first try (x+3)(x+3), this is when you do the FOIL method. Idk if you've heard of that?
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
um ive heard of it when i moved to FL but it always confused me
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Yeah, factoring is a tough one to teach lol So basically it means, First, Outside, Inside, Last You would multiply the first thing in the first parenthesis by the first thing in the second parenthesis. Both of those values are x, and x times x is x^2 Same with the outside. The outside of the first is an x and the outside of the second is a 3. 3 times x is 3x Inside is a 3 and a x, which is 3x And last is the last thing in each of the parenthesis, which is a 3 and 3. 3 and 3 = 9
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
okay that makes sense
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Awesome! So we combine every answer we found, getting x^2 + 3x + 3x + 9 Then we would combine like terms. 3x and 3x both have just x on the end So our final answer is x^2 + 6x + 9. That's what we started with
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
so x^2+3x+3x+9
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Yep, exactly!
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
So they decided to present you with a overly complication problem. Luckily if you look at the answer choices, they've already given one factor for each part of the fraction, so you just have to find the other to make sure if it's correct
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
i think its c
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
So lets' start with A 4z + 3 ------ z + 2 Using the FOIL Method for the top first: (4z + 3)(?????) First: 4z and ? would make 12z^2 (The 12z^2 is from your original question)
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Mmm, it's not C
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
wouldnt it be 4z+3 again sorry im slow lol
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Almost 4z and 4z would be a 16z^2, you see it? Because 4x4=16 and z*z = z^2
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
oh 4z and 3z would be 12z^2
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Yes! Exactly (4z +3)(3z ?) Now, lets do the outside, which is well easier. 3 and ? multiply to get 12?
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
3 and 4
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Yep, so let's add that (4z + 3)(3z 4) Now the hardest part: Seeing if that symbol between 3z and 4 is a + or - If it's a +, that would be (4z +3)(3z +4). We can test the outside first and see +3 times +4 = +12, but the original says -12, so it's not that. If we do minus (4z+3)(3z-4), it gives us -12, but doing the foil method, 4z x 4 is 16z and 3z times 3 is 9z. +16z added onto a +9z is a 25z, but the original said -25z Since + or - doesn't work for any of these. 4z+3 isn't right That all make sense? Seeing 4z+3 doesn't work, we can automatically remove two answer choices
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
oh okay
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
So the answer must have 4z-3 on the top Now to figure out the bottom, we do the same thing. They gave us z-2 and z+2 as choices. Since A is out, let's start with B, z+2 (Z + 2)(????) Z times ? would equal 3z? (3z in the original) 2 times ? would equal 8?
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
-8, not 8
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
z times 3 would equal 3z
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
2 times -4
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Right! So let's use those (z +2)(3z -4) 3z times z = 3z^2 2 times -4 = -8 The outsides are z and -4, which equals -4z The insides are 2 and 3z, with is 6z -4z + 6z = 2z When you put those 3 answers together you get 3z^2+2z-8! So B must be the answer
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Since 3z^2+2z-8 is the same as the original denominator

Thank you so much for all the help :)
