The polynomials you have posted are of the form AB + CB, where the common factor, B, can be pulled out front: AB + CB = B(A + C). To learn how this works, try here.
Hello, All,
I my teacher put our math test off till next class. I did not bring my notebook (thinking we were going to test), so I could not ask my 3 questions. She added the section I had questions about to the test. Please help me:
The directions are,"Factor each term"
I have three problems here, and if one of you guys could just work them out, I will be able to see the patterns. I know the answers, but I just need to see how they are worked out.
I tried googling "factoring polynomials) and this forum, but I guess I don't know how to look, so thanks again for your patience.
(x+3)(x+1)-y(x+1)
Sorry 'bout the squares. There is a problem with my superscript.
Most humble thanks, but I understand every bit of that link; however, these all have three sets of parentheses. The examples on that link only have two. These problems are more complex, and I am just failing to make the connection.
