Factorize completely the expression abx\(^2\) + 6y - 3ax - 2byx.



Dicussion (1)

  • Collect terms that look closest to each other
    (abx²-2byx)(6y-3ax)
    What's common?
    bx(ax-2y)-3(-2y-ax)
    Note: always make sure the terms in both brackets are same to know if you're getting it
    Collect the ones outside the brackets
    (ax-2y)(bx-3)
