    Re: Factor

    Hello, Mhmh96!

    \text{Factor: }\;x^2 + x + 6y^2 + 3y + 5xy

    We have: . (x^2 + 5xy + 6y^2) + (x + 3y)

    . . . . . . =\;(x+3y)(x + 2y) + (x+3y)

    . . . . . . =\;(x+3y)(x + 2y+1)




    \text{Factor: }\; x^2 + (a + \tfrac{1}{a})xy + y^2

    x^2 + (a + \tfrac{1}{a})xy + y^2

    . . =\; x^2 + axy + \tfrac{1}{a}xy + y^2

    . . =\;x(x + ay) + \tfrac{1}{a}y(x + ay)

    . . =\;(x+ay)(x + \tfrac{1}{a}y)
