    Factoring

    Hi, Im new so Im nt sure how to write exponents haha.

    Can you factor this equation into 2 binomials? Iv been trying forever and if you can then Im missing something lol.

    20m(exponent 9)+18m(exponent 5)+10m(exponent 3)

    It simplifies to 2m(ex 3)(10m(ex 6)+9m(ex2)+10)

    so can you simplify (10m(ex 6)+9m(ex2)+10) into 2 binomials?

    Is 20m^9 + 18m^5 + 10m^3 the starting equation? Also, I can't seem to find how you've ended up having (2m^3)((10m^6)+(9m^2)+10), especially the +10 at the end. Could you please enlighten us on the procedure you've used?
