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:
  • On pages 345-6 and 353 of Elementary and Intermediate Algebra, there are many factoring problems. You will find your assignment in the following table.
    If the 3rd letter of your last name isOn Page 345-6
    Do the Following
    On Page 353
    Do the Following
    A or N80 and 10668
    B or O72 and 10438
    C or P98 and 10264
    D or Q68 and 10030
    E or R82 and 9658
    F or S66 and 5426
    G or T92 and 6456
    H or U70 and 6248
    I or V90 and 5628
    J or W74 and 6062
    K or X88 and 5834
    L or Y78 and 5266
    M or Z86 and 7636
  • For the problems on page 345-6, 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.
  • For the problem 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
    • GCF
    • Prime factors
    • Perfect square
    • Grouping
Your initial post should be 150-250 words in length. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7. Make sure you choose people who don’t have the same numbers as you worked. Do you agree with how they used the vocabulary? Is their example of polynomial multiplication suitable as a comparison?
