ByronAnswer by longjonsilver(2297)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!re-writing something as 2 things multiplied. so, factorise 10: you could answer 1x10 or 2x5 or 4x2.5 etc etc Factorise 88: 1x88 or 8x11 or 2x4x11 or 2x2x2x11 etc Factorise 10+4x --> 2(5+2x), so the factors are 2 and (5+2x), since these do multiply to give the polynomial in the question. Ok? jon
