As we discussed on first part about the meaning of quadratic Expression and equation, here we continue in operation:
Some expression may have common number or letter that multiplied by each term in it. For example in this expression 10 + 15, the common number is 5 that multiplied by 2 + 3 and obtained 10 + 5, i.e. 5(2 +3); also in 2x + 6x
(1) Factorize 2c + 4;
2c + 4, here we don’t deal with letter c because it is found in only one term, here we deal with 2 and 4. Finding the GCF of 2 and 4, we get 2 so that is the number that should be factored out, 2( ); by dividing each term by that number "2” we get the answer 2(c + 2).
(1) Factorize 9m + 3mn + 27m
9m + 3mn + 27m
(1) 2x (4) rx
(1) 2(x (4) 2fy (1 – y + 4f); (5) t(2+5t –ft); up to here you will have a good idea on how to factorize simple expression; The next tutorial we'll check how to factorize Quadratic Expression; Click here to go now. | |
