Factor the expression 10x^2 + 20x - 80.
Answer: 10(x - 2)(x + 4) Explanation: We have a common factor of 10x, so we can factor it out in order for it to equal 10(x^2+10x-8). Then, you can use the reverse FOIL method (first, outsides, insides, lasts) to factor out both (x-2)(x+4). Our final answer is 10(x-2)(x-4). We can distribute 10 and multiply the terms to double check if our answer is then correct.
