I have the square trinomial If I factor it I get: but If I rearrange the addends in an order in which literal addend are to precede numerial addends, , and factor it I get: aren't and equal in value? Why do I get different square binomials?
Follow Math Help Forum on Facebook and Google+
with some factoring we can show they are the same!
thanks!
