Factoring CompletelyFactoreach polynomial completely. Use the methods discussed in Sections 5.1 through 5.3. If the polynomial is prime say so.Problem 82:9w-w3 Every term has a GCFof ww(3-w2) The common factor will be removed and the problem is now completely factored.Problem 96:2a2+ 3a+1 this polynomial is also a perfect square. The method that we will be using to factorthis polynomial is the AC method. a = 2; b = 3; c =1; ac = 2 Since b is a positive number and c is a positive number, we know that 2 is the sum of two positive numbers. These two numbers are 1 and 1 because they make a product of 1 and a sum of 1.(2a+1)(a+1)Factored by grouping.Checked by multiplying it back together.Problem 58:106. h2– 9hs+9s2This polynomial is now completely factored. No further work is needed since these terms are prime factors.
