A factored polynomial reveals its roots, a key concept in understanding the behavior of these expressions.
True or False?
\(x(x + 1) + x(x + 2) = 2x^2 + 3x\)
Are these expressions equivalent?
\((2x^2 - x) + (8x - 4)\)
\(x(2x - 1) + 4(2x - 1)\)
\(x^4 - y^6 = \, ?\)
Is \((x + 2)\) a factor of \((x^3 - 8)?\)
(HINT: If \((x - 4)\) is a factor of an expression, then 4 is a solution to the equation created when that expression equals 0.)
