My last name is Ganzer which makes the 3 rd letter of my last name an N . For this week’s discussion I had to perform the problems #80 , #106 , and also #68 . There is not much to discuss here. It’s all about showing my work. Here is problem #80 . w 2 +30w+ 81 To find the prime factors of this trinomial, first multiply 81 by the coefficient of w 2 , which is 1 and then find the factors of the sum which will add up to equal 30. The numbers should be 3 and 27. w 2 +3w+27w+81 Next, factor by grouping . w(w +3) + (w+3)27 The GCF of the binomial is (w+3). =(w+3) (w+27) This was not a perfect square trinomial because the coefficient of w 2 does not have a prime factor of 3. The next problem I was faced with is
