# Thread: Factoring and nasty numbers?

1. ## Factoring and nasty numbers?

I am having trouble with my factoring homework in Algebra. If you could please help I would appreciate it
1. 2k squared + 3k + 1
2. 18y + 12y squared + 2y cubed
3. m squared + 8mn + 16n squared
4.4y cubed - 12y squared + 8y
5. 1/3b squared + 2b + 3
6. 1/4x squared + 3/2x + 2
7. 4a cubed + 3a squared b squared + 8a + 6b squared
8. 20a squared x - 4a squared y - 45xb squared + 9yb squared
9. x squared + 6x + 9 - y squared
10. (2x-3) squared - 4(2x-3) - 5
11. 12mp squared - 15np squared - 16m + 20np - 16mp + 20n
Also it wants us to list the first six nasty number I know the first is 6 and that the next 5 are multiples of six.... thank you

2. ## Too many questions

Please don't post more than two or three questions in a thread. Otherwise the thread can get convoluted and difficult to follow. Start new threads as necessary for remaining questions. eg. If you have five questions, post two of them in two threads and start a new thread for the remaining one etc.

(And if the question has more than two parts to it, it is best to post only that question and its parts in the thread and start a new thread for other questions).
