Please assist me in completely factoring the following expressions: (the numbers are exponents) 1)16t3 - 50t2 + 36t I have 2t (8t+9)(T+2) is this correct???
2) 48u4v4 - 18u2v2 - 3u8v5 I'm stuck on this one
3) 4q2 + 27r ? Thank you!

Hi jay1,
You still can't do anything with $\displaystyle 4q^2+27r^4$
And for $\displaystyle 2a^3-128$, first factor out a 2.
$\displaystyle 2(a^3-64)$ and recognize that $\displaystyle a^3-64$ is the difference of two cubes. You should know how to handle that one, don't you?
$\displaystyle 2(a^3-4^3)=$
