If you mean: x2-12x+35 then it is (x-7)(x-5) when factored

If you mean: 4x squared+12x-40 then it is (x+5)(x-2) after dividing all terms by 4

Terms in polynomials are simply separated by a plus or minus sign. For example, if you had: x+12x, that would be a binomial (two terms). A trinomial is when the expression has three or more terms, 7x+12x-6x.

GCF = 12x.24x = 2(12x)36x3 = 3x2(12x)

Expressing each number as the product of prime number helps a lot in finding gcf.Prime factorization of 48x5 = 2x2x2x2x3x5Prime factorization of 36x3 = 2x2x3x3x3It is clear that 2x2x3 is the greatest common factor.So, gcf is 12.

x3 - 12x2 + 35x = x(x2 - 12x + 35) = x(x - 5)(x - 7)

If you mean x^2 -12x+35 then it is a quadratic expression which can be factored in the form of (x-7)(x-5)

I would do this. Multiply through by -1 -1 ( -X^2 +12X +28 ) = X^2 -12X -28 (X+2)(X-14)

(-2x3 - 2x2 + 12x) = -2x (x2 + x - 6) = -2x (x + 3) (x - 2)

-2x3 + 2x2 + 12x = -2x(x2 - x - 6) = -2x(x2 + 2x - 3x - 6) = -2x[ x(x + 2) - 3(x + 2) ] = -2x(x - 3)(x + 2)
