Factor out the GCF .

Now let's try to factor the inner expression

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

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 :
1,2,3,5,6,10,15,25,30,50,75,150
-1,-2,-3,-5,-6,-10,-15,-25,-30,-50,-75,-150

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

These factors pair up and multiply to .
1*(-150) = -150
2*(-75) = -150
3*(-50) = -150
5*(-30) = -150
6*(-25) = -150
10*(-15) = -150
(-1)*(150) = -150
(-2)*(75) = -150
(-3)*(50) = -150
(-5)*(30) = -150
(-6)*(25) = -150
(-10)*(15) = -150

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

First NumberSecond NumberSum
1-1501+(-150)=-149
2-752+(-75)=-73
3-503+(-50)=-47
5-305+(-30)=-25
6-256+(-25)=-19
10-1510+(-15)=-5
-1150-1+150=149
-275-2+75=73
-350-3+50=47
-530-5+30=25
-625-6+25=19
-1015-10+15=5

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 then factors further to

So completely factors to .

In other words, .

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

Here's what the completed table looks like

Keep in mind that p <--> q is only true if BOTH p AND q have the same truth value (ie both are true or false together)

Also, p --> q is only false when p is true and q is false. Otherwise it's true.

Calculate the probability of Event A (rounded to two decimals).1 solutions Answer 445714 by jim_thompson5910(28595)   on 2013-03-21 16:39:03 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let x = P(B) P(A) = 3*P(B) ... This is given when you are told that "Event A is 3 times more likely that Event B" There are only two outcomes A and B. So their probabilities must add to 1 P(A) + P(B) = 1 3*P(B) + P(B) = 1 3*x + x = 1 4x = 1 x = 1/4 P(B) = 1/4 = 0.25 P(A) = 3*P(B) P(A) = 3*(1/4) P(A) = 3/4 = 0.75 So the probability of event A is 0.75

I'll do the first one to get you started

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 :
1,2,3,5,6,10,15,30
-1,-2,-3,-5,-6,-10,-15,-30

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

These factors pair up and multiply to .
1*(-30) = -30
2*(-15) = -30
3*(-10) = -30
5*(-6) = -30
(-1)*(30) = -30
(-2)*(15) = -30
(-3)*(10) = -30
(-5)*(6) = -30

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

First NumberSecond NumberSum
1-301+(-30)=-29
2-152+(-15)=-13
3-103+(-10)=-7
5-65+(-6)=-1
-130-1+30=29
-215-2+15=13
-310-3+10=7
-56-5+6=1

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 .

In other words, .

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

 Subset/728523: A is the set of whole number factors of 12, and B is the set of whole number factors of 9. Determine whether the statement B⊆A is true or false. Use a Venn diagram to support your answer. 1 solutions Answer 445495 by jim_thompson5910(28595)   on 2013-03-20 14:10:07 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Draw a circle to represent the factors of 12. So the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12 go in this circle. The question is: Does the circle representing the factors of 9 go completely in the circle we just drew? Surely 1 and 3, which are factors of 9, are also factors of 12. However, 9 is a factor of 9, but it is NOT a factor of 12. So you'll have a circle that overlaps the previous circle, but a piece of it will be outside of the previous circle. The factors 1,3 go in the piece that's inside the "factors of 12 circle" and the number "9" goes in the piece that's outside the "factors of 12 circle" So B⊆A is false since not all elements in B are also in A.

Plug in each x to get a corresponding y value.

So for instance, when x = 0,

Plug in x = 0

Take the square root of 0 to get 0

So when x = 0, y is y = 0

This is one row in your table.
-------------------------------------------------------

Another example: When x = 4

Plug in x = 4

Take the square root of 4 to get 2

So when x = 4, y is y = 2

So another row will have 4, then 2

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

Last example: When x = 6

Plug in x = 4

You'll have to use a calculator here to get an approximation

So when x = 6, y is y = 2.449

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

You use these steps to generate the y value of each of the x values.

Doing so will give you this table

x y
0 0
1 1
2 1.414
3 1.732
4 2
6 2.449
9 3
12 3.464
16 4
