How do you factor the polynomials vp+12v+8p+96?

Apr 26, 2017

$\left(p + 12\right) \left(v + 8\right)$

Explanation:

$v p + 12 v + 8 p + 96$

$\therefore = \left(v p + 12\right) + \left(8 p + 96\right)$

$\therefore = v \left(p + 12\right) + 8 \left(p + 12\right)$

$\therefore = \left(p + 12\right) \left(v + 8\right)$
