Q:
# Select the two binomials that are factors of 64x^2 â€“ 36. A. 8x + 12 B. 8x â€“ 3 C. 8x + 6 D. 8x â€“ 6

Accepted Solution

A:

64x² - 36 factors to be (8x + 6)(8x - 6)

Option C is your answer.

HOWEVER, I cannot tell what the operation is supposed to be performed because of the way it is showing up above (see attached pic). So I can also just simplify it.

64x² - 36 becomes 4(16x² - 9) or 4(4x - 3)(4x + 3)

64x² + 36 becomes 4(16x² + 9)
