Week 5 Discussion Assignment I was required to do mathematical problems based upon the third letter of my last name which is “o”. So for this assignment it will be page 345 problem 72, and problem 104, and the last will be page 353 problem 38. #72) a 3 100 a First step was to Factor out the GCF of −a from each term in the polynomial. Factor out the GCF of −a from the expression −a3. −a (a2) −100a Factor out the GCF of −a from the expression −100a. −a (a2) –a (100) −a (a2) –a (100) Factor out the GCF of −a from −a3−100a. −a (a2+100) The polynomial cannot be factored using the grouping method . Factor out the GCF of −a from each term in the polynomial. Factor out the GCF of −a from the expression −a3. −a (a2) −100a Factor out the GCF of −a from the expression −100a. −a (a2) −a (100) −a (a2) −a (100) Factor out the GCF of −a from −a3−100a. a (a2+100) is the final sum for this problem. #104 ) 4 w 3 16 w 2 + 20 w Factor out the GCF of −4w from each term in the polynomial.
