### 9x + 24y

• A.

3(3x + 8y)

• B.

9x + 24y

• C.

X(9 + 24)

A. 3(3x + 8y)
Explanation
The given expression 9x + 24y is equivalent to the expression 3(3x + 8y) because when we distribute the 3 to both terms inside the parentheses, we get 3 multiplied by 3x which is 9x, and 3 multiplied by 8y which is 24y. Therefore, the two expressions are equal. The answer 3(3x + 8y) is the correct one.

### 7(y + 1) - x(y + 1)

• A.

7y + 7 - xy - x

• B.

(y + 1)(7x)

• C.

(y + 1)(7 - x)

C. (y + 1)(7 - x)
Explanation
The given expression can be simplified by distributing the terms. First, distribute 7 to both y and 1, which gives 7y + 7. Then, distribute -x to both y and 1, which gives -xy - x. Combining these terms, we get 7y + 7 - xy - x. This matches the expression (y + 1)(7 - x), so the answer is (y + 1)(7 - x).

### 5(x + 2) + y(x + 2)

• A.

(x + 2)(5 + y)

• B.

5x + 10 + xy + 2y

• C.

(2x)(5 + y)

A. (x + 2)(5 + y)
Explanation
The given expression can be simplified by distributing the terms inside the parentheses. By doing so, we get 5x + 10 + xy + 2y. This matches the expression (x + 2)(5 + y), so it is the correct answer.

### 20x - 10

• A.

10(2x - 1)

• B.

2(10x - 5)

• C.

10(x - 1)

A. 10(2x - 1)
Explanation
The given expression 20x - 10 can be factored out as 10(2x - 1). This is the correct answer because when we distribute 10 to the terms inside the parentheses, we get 20x - 10, which matches the original expression.

### 12mn + 18mp

• A.

6m(2n + 3p)

• B.

12(mn + 18mp)

• C.

2(6mn + 9mp)

A. 6m(2n + 3p)
Explanation
The given expression, 12mn + 18mp, can be factored out by taking out the common factors of 6m. This results in 6m(2n + 3p).

### X(x - 1) + 5(x - 1)

• A.

(x - 1)(5 -x)

• B.

(x - 1)(5x)

• C.

(x - 1)(x + 5)

C. (x - 1)(x + 5)
Explanation
The given expression can be simplified by factoring out the common factor of (x - 1) from both terms. This results in (x - 1) multiplied by (x + 5), which is the correct answer.

### 6a - 4b + 8c

• A.

2(3a - 2b + 4c)

• B.

A(6a - 4 + 8c)

• C.

4(2a - b + 2c)

A. 2(3a - 2b + 4c)
Explanation
The given expression 6a - 4b + 8c can be simplified by factoring out the common terms from each term. The expression 2(3a - 2b + 4c) is the correct answer because it represents the simplified form of the given expression. By distributing the 2 to each term inside the parentheses, we get 6a - 4b + 8c, which matches the original expression.

### 18x - 12y - 30z

• A.

6x(3x - 2y - 5z)

• B.

2(9x - 6y - 15z)

• C.

18(x - 12 - 30z)

A. 6x(3x - 2y - 5z)
Explanation
The given expression, 18x - 12y - 30z, can be factored out by finding the greatest common factor (GCF) of the coefficients. The GCF of 18, 12, and 30 is 6. Factoring out 6 from each term gives us 6x(3x - 2y - 5z). Therefore, the correct answer is 6x(3x - 2y - 5z).

### Factorize: x²+4x

• A.

X(x+4)

• B.

4x(x+1)

• C.

X(x+4)

• D.

None of the above

A. X(x+4)
Explanation
The given expression can be factorized as x(x+4). This is because we can factor out the common factor of x from both terms, leaving us with x multiplied by (x+4).
