Q: Factorize 51y^2 - 2580y - 39879.
Please help if you can.
Many thanks.
Simplifying
51y2 -2580y -39879
First, you need to reorder the terms then factor the GCF that will be 3
3(-13293 + -860y + 17y2)
then factor a trinomial
3[(-211 -17y)(63 -y)]so the final result is3(-211-17y)(63 -y)
i'm not sure bout this. i just tried. you can check it.
Hello, isuckatmaths!
This is The Trinomial From Hell (coming to a theater near you).
Factor: .$\displaystyle 51y^2 - 2580y - 39879$
Factor out 3: .$\displaystyle 3(17y^2 - 860y - 13293)$
There are a number of ways to factor this ugly trinomial.
. . I hope you know at least one.
Answer: .$\displaystyle 3(x - 63)(17x + 211)$
