Because the square root of -25 would be that number that, squared, would equal -25. No number, positive or negative, can result in a negative square. Since -25 is a negative number, no number, positive or negative, can be squared to equal -25.

Since the problem has 4 terms, first you factor x cubed plus 9x squared, then you factor 2x plus 18. So when you factor the first two term, you would get x sqaured (x plus 9). Then when you factor the last two terms and you get 2 (x plus 9). Ypure final answer would be (x squared plus 2)(x plus 9)

( x - y )2There isn't enough information to answer this question because they have two squared variables and you do not know what is being squared. You would first need to either know the value of one of the variables and an equation of the value of both of the variables before you would be able to factor.

6n(2n - 3)

You would factor 2x2 + 7x + 6 into (2x + 3) (x+2)

I believe it would be 9, because negative three's negative would be 9 (double negative)

-3^2 = -9, It is -3 x 3 = -9, unless its in parenthesis, which would be (-3)^2, this equation is -3 x -3, which equals 9. Since a negative and a negative in multiplication is always positive.9

No.(-i)2= (-1 x i)2= (-1)2 x i2= 1 x i2= i2= -1but if it is written-i2Then= -i2= (-1) * i2= -1 * -1= 1

You would factor 2x2 + 7x + 6 into (2x + 3) (x+2)

This is not possible, because any number squared would be positive, not negative.

(x squared plus the square root of 2) times (x squared minus the square root of 2).

Since squared centimeters is cm^2 then instead of converting it normally from centimeters to meters you would multiply it by 2.
