    ok, 5x^2-40xy+80y^2 factored out would be (x-4y)(5x-20y)

    the next problemo is 10x^2-14x-12

    basically, the way i do it, is to first figure out what two numbers, when multiplied together, would come out to the number without the variable (in this case -12)... so i picked -2 and +6 ... then figure out what two numbers when multiplied together would come out to the first number (in this case 10)... i picked just 1 and 10, and because of that, it also satisfied the -14 aspect of the equation... if it hadn't, i might have tried 2 and 5, because those also come out to 10 when multiplied.

    sorry if this didn't make any sense... it's the method i would use... i'm really bad at explaining things though.

    you can factor further there also... you still have a 2 to factor out.
    which should be factored first.

    What in the fuck is that? Shit reminds me of some encrypted code.

    I hope I don't have any crazy hard math coming up in my math classes I think its like Business math and College algebra.

    I have a hard enough time doing shit I learned in 9th grade.
