**Question description**

Read the following instructions in order to complete this discussion, and review the example of how to complete the math required for this assignment:

Factor the polynomials using whatever strategy seems appropriate. State
what methods you will use and then demonstrate the methods on your
problems, explaining the process as you go. Discuss any particular
challenges those particular polynomials posed for the factoring.

1. −*a*^{3}−100*a*

2. −4*w*^{3}−16*w*^{2} + 20*w*

For the problem 38 on page 353 make sure you use the “ac method” regardless of what the book’s directions say. Show the steps of this method in your work in a similar manner as how the book shows it in examples

- Incorporate the following five math vocabulary words into your discussion. Use
**bold**font to emphasize the words in your writing (**Do not write definitions for the words; use them appropriately in sentences describing your math work**.):- Factor
