Simplify polynomials ex. ((3x^2)+5x)(x-1) | ((3x^2)+5x)(x-1)= (3x^2)(x-1)+5x(x-1)= (3x^3)-(3x^2)+(5x^2)-5x= (3x^3)+(2x^2)-5x= |

How to factor the following polynomials: ab+ac (a^2)+2ab+(b^2) (a^2)-2ab+(b^2) (a^2)-(b^2) | ab+ac=a(b+c) (a^2)+2ab+(b^2)=(a+b)^2 (a^2)-2ab+(b^2)=(a-b)^2 (a^2)-(b^2)=(a-b)(a+b) |
