Download PDF Document Question 8 - Multiple-Choice

Reporting Category: Algebra and Functions
Standard: 10.P.4 - Demonstrate facility in symbolic manipulation of polynomial and rational expressions by rearranging and collecting terms; factoring (e.g., a2 - b2 = (a + b)(a - b), x2 + 10x + 21 = (x + 3)(x + 7), 5x4 + 10x3 - 5x2 = 5x2 (x2 + 2x - 1)); identifying and canceling common factors in rational expressions; and applying the properties of positive integer exponents. (AI.P.8)
Standard: Mathematics.A.SSE.1.02 - Use the structure of an expression to identify ways to rewrite it. For example, see x4 – y4 as (x²)² – (y²)², thus recognizing it as a difference of squares that can be factored as (x² – y²)(x² + y²).
