Solutions

Chapter 1.3, Problem 103E
To determine

To calculate: The factors of the expression 494y2 .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 103E

The factors of the expression 494y2 are 72y and 7+2y .

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The expression 494y2 .

Formula used:

The special factoring formula of difference of squares which is expressed as,

  A2B2=(A+B)(AB)

Calculation:

Consider the given expression 494y2 .

Rewrite it as,

  494y2=(7)2(2y)2

Recall the special factoring formula of difference of squares which is expressed as,

  A2B2=(A+B)(AB)

Here, the values of A and B are A=7 and B=2y .

  494y2=(7)2(2y)2=(72y)(7+2y)

Thus, the factors of expression 494y2 are 72y and 7+2y .
