For example, 100 is a perfect square because . You can figure out if a number is a perfect square by evaluating the square root of that number. If the square root of that number is a whole number, then that number is a perfect square. So (which makes it a perfect square), but (which makes it a non-perfect square) The radical sign is just another way of saying the square root sign. Note: keep in mind that x = -11 is also a solution along with x = 11
 Polynomials-and-rational-expressions/550648: i am helping my son with a worksheet from school and the answer sheet for his worksheet is saying his answer is wrong the question he is stuck on is (2xy)(3xy)(6x^8y^6) he is doing a multiplication of monomials worksheet and the answer he got is 36x^10y^6 is that right or is the worksheet right when it states the answer is 11x^10y^6 and why?1 solutions Answer 358938 by jim_thompson5910(28715)   on 2011-12-28 11:49:24 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The answer is actually 36x^10y^8, so the worksheet is wrong. The final coefficient is equal to the product of the other coefficients. So the final coefficient is 2*3*6=6*6=36 Then you multiply the x terms to get x*x*x^8 = x^(1+1+8)=x^10 and then you multiply the y terms to get y*y*y^6 = y^(1+1+6) = y^8 put this all together to get 36x^10y^8

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 :
1,2,3,5,6,9,10,15,18,30,45,90
-1,-2,-3,-5,-6,-9,-10,-15,-18,-30,-45,-90

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

These factors pair up and multiply to .
1*90 = 90
2*45 = 90
3*30 = 90
5*18 = 90
6*15 = 90
9*10 = 90
(-1)*(-90) = 90
(-2)*(-45) = 90
(-3)*(-30) = 90
(-5)*(-18) = 90
(-6)*(-15) = 90
(-9)*(-10) = 90

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

First NumberSecond NumberSum
1901+90=91
2452+45=47
3303+30=33
5185+18=23
6156+15=21
9109+10=19
-1-90-1+(-90)=-91
-2-45-2+(-45)=-47
-3-30-3+(-30)=-33
-5-18-5+(-18)=-23
-6-15-6+(-15)=-21
-9-10-9+(-10)=-19

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).

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 :
1,2,3,4,5,6,10,12,15,20,30,60
-1,-2,-3,-4,-5,-6,-10,-12,-15,-20,-30,-60

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

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

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

-3-20-3+(-20)=-23
-4-15-4+(-15)=-19
-5-12-5+(-12)=-17
-6-10-6+(-10)=-16

 Linear-systems/550512: -2x – 8y = -42 -4x + 6y = -181 solutions Answer 358822 by jim_thompson5910(28715)   on 2011-12-27 18:30:54 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Start with the given system of equations: Multiply the both sides of the first 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)
