Factor this polynomial completely!!

OpenStudy (anonymous):

kinda need a polynomial to factor completely

OpenStudy (anonymous):

\[10m ^{3}n ^{2}-15m^{2} n+25m\]

OpenStudy (anonymous):

...yeah. that's precisely the part i kinda need help with.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

ok... 5m ( 2m^2n^2 - 3 mn +5 )

OpenStudy (anonymous):

how'd you get that?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

greatest number that goes into all 3 of them is 5

OpenStudy (anonymous):

m is something they all have in common...

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so 5m can be factored out...then it's just whatever is left

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so i don't have to factor using the table or box method?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

no...that's factored completely

OpenStudy (anonymous):

hang on lemme make sure

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yea...that's factored completely

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so is that my final answer?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yep

OpenStudy (anonymous):

ok. thanks!

OpenStudy (anonymous):

wait, don't i need an x and y value?
