    Factor the following polynomials by applying the appropriate method
    (show all the steps the the answer)

    go sector go!!!

    1...... 14abc + 18a^2bc - 21ab^2 + 16a^4bc^3

    i would try it, but the way you put the problems are confusing,
    the correct notation for exponents in type written form is ^2 or ^3 and so on....so a squared would look like this- a^2 ...if you retype them i might try them out...im okay at factoring....

    i tried doing it. i'm good at math (up to calculus 4), but that doesn't factor into anything. its just as complex as what was started with. double check you typed it correctly or that its the entire problem

    14abc + 18a^2bc - 21ab^2 + 16a^4bc^3
    = 14abc - 21ab^2 + 18a^2bc + 16a^4bc^3
    =7ab(2c - 3b) + 2a^2bc(9 + 8a^2c^2)


    14abc + 18a^2bc - 21ab^2 + 16a^4bc^3
    =14abc + 16a^4bc^3 + 18a^2bc - 21ab^2
    =2abc(7 + 8a^2c^2) + 3ab(6ac - 7b)

    there might be more possibilities, but you get the idea...

    -50c^3d^2p^4 - 10acd + 20ap^4
    =10(-5c^3d^2p^4 - acd + 2ap^4)


    -50c^3d^2p^4 - 10acd + 20ap^4
    = -50c^3d^2p^4 - 10a(cd + 2p^4)


    -50c^3d^2p^4 - 10acd + 20ap^4
    =10cd(-5c^2dp^4 - a) + 20ap^4

    there might be more possibilities, but you get the idea...

    somethings not right. ususally when you learn basic algebra things factor to cute little problems, this shit is just as ugly as when started...
