Thanks a lot that was really helpful. But for number 2 not sure want you meant by "Apply the same formula to 12x - 6y and 5u - 10y as you would to a and b. Make sure to simplify (by adding y-terms) inside the factors." Number 4 I'm not sure what you mean by simplifying inside the factors? Am I suppo...

### Help with equation solving and polynomial inequality

Not sure how to solve this for x is the element of the real number system:
x^3 = x^2 + 4x

Not sure how to solve this inequality

x^3 = 33 < 0

### Factoring: x - d + (x-d)^2, 36(2x-y)^2 - 25(u-2y)^2,

I have some factoring questions that I wasn't sure how to do. The methods we can ue are common factoring, difference of squares, trinomial factoring, grouping, sum and difference of cubes, factor theorem, and extended factor theorem.) I'm not sure how to factor a trinomial though. These questions ar...
