Sometimes I think that just a little discussion can make all the difference if like minded people can help each other out
I am asked to factorise the following expression;
6p^3 - 4pq + 2p. This I understand to be reverse engineering, but I seem to struggle with it at the moment?
6p^3 - 4pq + 2p = 6p^2 (p - 2pq + 2)
Now if I say; 6p^2 x p = 6p^3 - 2 x 2pq +2)
result; 6p^3 - 4pq + 2
My problem seems to be what happend to the "p" at the end with 2? i.e. 2p?
Thanks for any help
I think I have worked out the following solution?
6p^3 - 2q + 1 = 6p^2 (p - 2q + 1) = 6p^3 - 4pq +2p
Not sure if i am right though?
