Question and answer
Factor the following polynomial completely. -x^2y^2 + x^4 + 4y^2 - 4x^2
-x^2y^2 + x^4 + 4y^2 - 4x^2 = x^2(x^2 - y^2) + 4(y^2 - x^2) = (x^2 - y^2)(x^2 - 4) = (x - y)(x + y)(x - 2)(x + 2)

-x^2y^2 + x^4 + 4y^2 - 4x^2
= x^2(x^2 - y^2) + 4(y^2 - x^2)
= (x^2 - y^2)(x^2 - 4)
= (x - y)(x + y)(x - 2)(x + 2)

Find the quotient. (6x 2 + 23x + 20) ÷ (5 + 2x)
Weegy: (6x^2 + 23x + 20) / (5 + 2x) = [(3x + 4)(2x + 5)]/(2x + 5) = 3x + 4 (More)

Find the sum and choose the correct answer. 2n 3 + 4n 2 - 7 and -n 3 - 8n - 2
Weegy: 2n^3 + 4n^2 - 7 + (-n^3 + 8n - 9); = 2n^3 - n^3 + 4n^2 + 8n - 7 - 9; = n^3 + 4n^2 + 8n - 16 (More)
