    Section 6.2 Factor the trinomial completely: Questions 66/67
    66. 5b3 - 5b2 - 60b (the small numbers indicate to the 3rd and 2nd powers respectively).

    ----First factor out 5b
    5b(b^2-b-12) ----Then reverse FOIL to find the two binomials. The factors of 12 include 1,2,3,4,6,12)

    5b(b+3)(b-4)

    70. 6n4 - 18n3 + 12n2 (the small numbers indicate to the 4th 3rd and 2 powers respectively).
    First ...
