How to factorize this polynomial - rancom - 08-23-2022 12:02 PM
Hi all, I am learning math and learning how to use the HP Prime as well. How do I factorize 4x^2+36xy+81y^2 and get (2x+9y)^2 as a result? Things I've tried in CAS view: - factor(4x^2+36xy+81y^2) -> 36xy+4x^2+81y^2 - factors(4x^2+36xy+81y^2) -> [4*x^2+81*y^2+36*xy,1] - simplify(4x^2+36xy+81y^2) -> 4x^2+36xy+81y^2 - collect(4x^2+36xy+81y^2) -> 4x^2+81y^2+36xy - cfactor(4x^2+36xy+81y^2) -> 4x^2+81y^2+36xy RE: How to factorize this polynomial - robmio - 08-23-2022 05:16 PM

Add a * between x and y, otherwise xy is interpreted as a single variable with a name identifier of length 2. RE: How to factorize this polynomial - robmio - 08-23-2022 05:17 PM

I don't believe you have to put a multiplication symbol between a number and its variable when entering the equation. For example entering; factor(4x^2+36x*y+81y^2) appears to be automatically interpreted as factor(4*x^2+36x*y+81*y^2) without having to enter the * after the 4, 36 or 81.

Thank you so much for letting me know this possibility. Regards, Roberto RE: How to factorize this polynomial - rprosperi - 08-23-2022 05:48 PM
It's beginning to look like Facebook here fellas, 1 or 2 of the same answers are probably enough... LOL RE: How to factorize this polynomial - toml_12953 - 08-23-2022 10:35 PM

I know that answers don't show up immediately for me so sometimes I answer a question that's been answered two or three times (or more!) before I see them.
