Answer 141366 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2009-03-26 22:52:08 (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website!

Looking at the expression , we can see that the first coefficient is , the second coefficient is , and the last term is .

Now multiply the first coefficient by the last term to get .

Now the question is: what two whole numbers multiply to (the previous product) and add to the second coefficient ?

To find these two numbers, we need to list all of the factors of (the previous product).

Factors of :
1,2,3,4,5,6,8,10,12,15,20,24,30,40,60,120
-1,-2,-3,-4,-5,-6,-8,-10,-12,-15,-20,-24,-30,-40,-60,-120

Note: list the negative of each factor. This will allow us to find all possible combinations.

These factors pair up and multiply to .
1*(-120)
2*(-60)
3*(-40)
4*(-30)
5*(-24)
6*(-20)
8*(-15)
10*(-12)
(-1)*(120)
(-2)*(60)
(-3)*(40)
(-4)*(30)
(-5)*(24)
(-6)*(20)
(-8)*(15)
(-10)*(12)

Now let's add up each pair of factors to see if one pair adds to the middle coefficient :

First NumberSecond NumberSum
1-1201+(-120)=-119
2-602+(-60)=-58
3-403+(-40)=-37
4-304+(-30)=-26
5-245+(-24)=-19
6-206+(-20)=-14
8-158+(-15)=-7
10-1210+(-12)=-2
-1120-1+120=119
-260-2+60=58
-340-3+40=37
-430-4+30=26
-524-5+24=19
-620-6+20=14
-815-8+15=7
-1012-10+12=2

From the table, we can see that the two numbers and add to (the middle coefficient).

So the two numbers and both multiply to and add to

Now replace the middle term with . Remember, and add to . So this shows us that .

Replace the second term with .

Group the terms into two pairs.

Factor out the GCF from the first group.

Factor out from the second group. The goal of this step is to make the terms in the second parenthesis equal to the terms in the first parenthesis.

Combine like terms. Or factor out the common term

---------------------------------------------

So factors to .

Note: you can check the answer by FOILing to get or by graphing the original expression and the answer (the two graphs should be identical).

I'll do the first two to get you started

# 1

Factor out the GCF

Now let's focus on the inner expression

------------------------------------------------------------

Looking at we can see that the first term is and the last term is where the coefficients are 1 and 1 respectively.

Now multiply the first coefficient 1 and the last coefficient 1 to get 1. Now what two numbers multiply to 1 and add to the middle coefficient 2? Let's list all of the factors of 1:

Factors of 1:
1

-1 ...List the negative factors as well. This will allow us to find all possible combinations

These factors pair up and multiply to 1
1*1
(-1)*(-1)

note: remember two negative numbers multiplied together make a positive number

Now which of these pairs add to 2? Lets make a table of all of the pairs of factors we multiplied and see which two numbers add to 2

First NumberSecond NumberSum
111+1=2
-1-1-1+(-1)=-2

From this list we can see that 1 and 1 add up to 2 and multiply to 1

Now looking at the expression , replace with (notice adds up to . So it is equivalent to )

Now let's factor by grouping:

Group like terms

Factor out the GCF of out of the first group. Factor out the GCF of out of the second group

Since we have a common term of , we can combine like terms

So factors to

So this also means that factors to (since is equivalent to )

note: is equivalent to since the term occurs twice. So also factors to

------------------------------------------------------------

So our expression goes from and factors further to

------------------

So completely factors to

# 2

Factor out the GCF

Rewrite as

Factor to get (use the difference of squares)

So completely factors to

Start with the given system of equations: Multiply the both sides of the first equation by 5. Distribute and multiply. Multiply the both sides of the second equation by 2. Distribute and multiply. So we have the new system of equations: Now add the equations together. You can do this by simply adding the two left sides and the two right sides separately like this: Group like terms. Combine like terms. Simplify. Divide both sides by to isolate . Reduce. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Now go back to the first equation. Plug in . Multiply. Subtract from both sides. Combine like terms on the right side. Divide both sides by to isolate . Reduce. So the solutions are and . Which form the ordered pair . This means that the system is consistent and independent. Notice when we graph the equations, we see that they intersect at . So this visually verifies our answer. Graph of (red) and (green)

I'm assuming that you want to factor this right?

Note: is NOT a binomial, it is a trinomial.

Looking at the expression , we can see that the first coefficient is , the second coefficient is , and the last term is .

Now multiply the first coefficient by the last term to get .

Now the question is: what two whole numbers multiply to (the previous product) and add to the second coefficient ?

To find these two numbers, we need to list all of the factors of (the previous product).

Factors of :
1,2,3,4,6,9,12,18,36
-1,-2,-3,-4,-6,-9,-12,-18,-36

Note: list the negative of each factor. This will allow us to find all possible combinations.

These factors pair up and multiply to .
1*36
2*18
3*12
4*9
6*6
(-1)*(-36)
(-2)*(-18)
(-3)*(-12)
(-4)*(-9)
(-6)*(-6)

Now let's add up each pair of factors to see if one pair adds to the middle coefficient :

First NumberSecond NumberSum
1361+36=37
2182+18=20
3123+12=15
494+9=13
666+6=12
-1-36-1+(-36)=-37
-2-18-2+(-18)=-20
-3-12-3+(-12)=-15
-4-9-4+(-9)=-13
-6-6-6+(-6)=-12

From the table, we can see that the two numbers and add to (the middle coefficient).

So the two numbers and both multiply to and add to

Now replace the middle term with . Remember, and add to . So this shows us that .

Replace the second term with .

Group the terms into two pairs.

Factor out the GCF from the first group.

Factor out from the second group. The goal of this step is to make the terms in the second parenthesis equal to the terms in the first parenthesis.

Combine like terms. Or factor out the common term

Condense the terms.
