ive been struggling with higher level maths and dropped to ordinary some weeks before the mocks, but still didn't get the results I wanted I post a few of the questions that I get confused and if anyone knows the answers please share, thankyou:)
Ok factorising I find so hard eg.
4xy6x(squared)y(squared)
Multiplying equations....
5(3a4b) ????
Like what's the difference of triangles eg scalic and icoseles
Solve....
Y(squared)5y = 0

xxhelenxx
5(3a4b)=
15a20b
scalene triangles have sides and angle of different length and iscoseles have two sides the same length and two angles the same size
sorry cant help you anymore than that...hope that helpsish!

5(3a4b).....
multiply each term in the brackets by the number outside the brackets. i.e
5 multiplied by 3a and then 5 multiplied by 4b.
5 multiplied by 3a= 15a..... then 5 multiplied by 4b= 20b
so it should look like this:
5(3a4b)
15a20b

This might help

ysquared  5y=0 .......y is a factor of both so take y outside a bracket, y goes into ysquared y times, y goes into 5y 5 times
y(y5)=0 ..........let each part being multiplied (ie. y and y5) and let them equal 0
y=0 and y5=0
so y=0 or y=5
same for your first sum, xy is a factor of both so put it outside the brackets:
xy(4+6xy)

Does that help??

Hi! @study person, you made a slight mistake with your explanation, because 2xy is also factor of both 4xy and 6x^2y^2. In addition to that, you wrote +6xy when it should have been 6xy. So this is how the expression will look if it was fully factorised: 2xy(2  3xy).
