I keep missing some steps. Could you please include the steps so I can see where I am messing up on these.Thank you. I need to factor each problem. 1) 6x^4y^5z^2 – 18x^4y^6z^4 + 24x^2y^5z^3 2) 16x^2 – 9Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15660)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!factor each problem. 1) 6x^4y^5z^2 – 18x^4y^6z^4 + 24x^2y^5z^3 : Note that we can factor out 6, leaving 6(x^4y^5z^2 – 3x^4y^6z^4 + 4x^2y^5z^3) : We can also factor out x^2 leaving: 6x^2(x^2y^5z^2 – 3x^2y^6z^4 + 4y^5z^3) : Factor out y^5 6x^2*y^5(x^2*z^2 – 3x^2*y*z^4 + 4z^3) : And factor out z^2 6x^2*y^5*z^2(x^2 – 3x^2*y*z^2 + 4z) : : 2) 16x^2 – 9 This is the "difference of squares" which factors to: (4x - 3)(4x + 3); FOIL this and prove it to yourself
