This week, I learnt in which order to factor equations.
First, you need to take out any common numbers.
Next you’ll want to check if it follows the pattern
As this equation does not, we don’t need to do anything. here’s an example of a number that does follow the pattern:
Back to the original equation, the final step is to see if the whole equation is a power of something else.
Which gives you your finished and fully factored number.
