Without looking at any factoring problems in the book, please do the following:

  • Create 2 polynomial expressions that are factorable. Here are important guidelines:
    1. Your polynomial must be at least of order 2 i.e., have an xterm or higher)
    2. If you create a quadratic (ax+ bx + c) you must choose a ≠ 1.
    3. If you create a cubic that can be factored using the sum and difference of cubes, you will get 2 extra points.
    4. Remember that factoring is the inverse operation of multiplication of polynomials.  This hint should be useful when creating your problems and checking your work.
  • Create 1 polynomial expression that is not factorable.
  • You may put the 3 expressions in any order.

Get this solved.
