I dont know how to do mixed factors what so ever, there is only one example in my text book but I dont know how to do the others.
These are some problems:
3p^2 - 3p - 36=
4a^3b + 8a^2b^2 - 2ab^2 =
*Note ^means: power of
$\displaystyle 3(p^2-p-12) $
$\displaystyle
= 3(p^2+3p-4p-12)
$
$\displaystyle = 3 x(px(p+3) - 4x(p+3))$
$\displaystyle =3x(p-4)x(p+3)$

Check this one again
4a^3b + 8a^2b^2 - 2ab^2
because it stops where Mathaddict did it
