Question description

Attached is my classmate post that I could really use help with. I would like to thank you in advance. Have a wonderful day and be blessed!

Read the postings by your classmates. Respond to the classmate whose assigned number follows yours. In your response, check the work of your classmate. a. Is the expression completely factored? b. Show ALL steps needed to carry out the multiplications shown in the posters final response – does it get you back to the original or not? If you find a mistake, kindly let them know about it. Original Assignment: Factor the expressions using any method. If your polynomial cannot be factored, then label it “prime." Be sure to explain your steps! My assigned number is 15 so I am supposed to be responding to post 16 which is: 1. 2x3 – 8x2 – 9x + 36 2. 2y2 + 24y + 72 Here is what #16 posted that I need to respond to. 1. 2x^3 - 8x^2 - 9x + 36 First we attempt to find the greatest common factor 2x^3 and 8x^2 common factor is 2x^2 The common factor for 9x and 36 is 3 Because our problem does not have a common factor it is prime 2. 2y^2 + 24y +72 First we attempt to find the greatest common factor 2, 24 and 72 are all divided by 2 Since 2 is the largest number that 2 can be divided by and the variable y is not behind the coefficient of 72 we do not factor the y. We end up with 2(y^2 + 12y + 36)
