Factor the following expression completely

1. Factor the following expression completely 36x3 - 16x 2. Andrew factored the expression 28x^3-6x^2-10x as 2x(14x^3-3x^2-5x). But when Melissa applied the distributive law and multiplied out 2x(14x^3-3x^2-5x), she got 28x^4-6x^3-10x^2 ; thus, Andrew's solution does not appear to check. Why is that? Please help Andrew to

Real - World Math Algebra: solving equations and problems

In general, the area of a rectangular shape is found by multiplying the length of the area by the width of the area. This can be represented by the formula area = length x width or A = L x W. If you were to measure the length and width in feet, then the result of this equation will be in square feet (ft^2). The resulting number
