Math people. How to factor these two terms?
I need to factor these two terms into two separate things that can multiple into each other to form the original term. It's part of a much longer more complex problem, but I got stuck on these two:
a) (3x^2 - 6x)
b) (3x^2 - 12)
Basically, I need them in two terms (or however many they normally factor into) so that I can find the critical points of a graph. These terms are the derivatives of a previous equation.
A) (3x) and (x-2) (You can pull a 3 and an x from the terms)
B) (3) and (x+2) and (x-2) (pull a 3 out, and then it's just difference of squares)
