# Math Help - Factoring Question

1. ## Factoring Question

36(2x-y)^2-25(u-2y)^2

Factor Completely.

I'm stumped guys Could someone solve and show steps?

2. Could you factor $36u^2-25w^2?$
If so then you can do the problem. Yes?

3. Wow I feel dumb. I always over complicated things and can't see patterns.

(12x + 4y -5u)(12x -16y +5u)

Thanks
