FactoringProblems from page 345-346As I have “T” as the third letter in my last name, I need to do Problems 64 and 92 from page 345-346 and problem 56 from page 353.Factoring with Two VariablesFactoreach polynomial.1. 12m2n2− 8mn+ 112m2n2− 8mn+ 1We have a trinomial here. We need two numbers that add to -8 but multiply to 12. We try with -2 and -6. 12m2n2− 6mn− 2mn+ 1Four terms means start with grouping6mn(2mn– 1) – 1(2mn– 1)The common factorfor each group is (2mn– 1)(6mn-1)(2mn-1)This works, check by multiplying it back together. Now it is completely factored.Factoring CompletelyFactoreach polynomial completely. Use the methods discussed in Sections 5.1 through 5.3. If the polynomial is prime say so.92. w3−3w2−18w
