Q:
# Which statement is true about the prime polynomial 2x2+3x+3 ？ It cannot be modeled with a rectangle. It can be modeled with a square. It cannot be modeled with all positive tiles. It can only be modeled with an odd number of tiles.

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:it cannot be modeled with a rectangleStep-by-step explanation:let's eliminate the wrong answers first1. it cannot be modeled with all positive tiles --- this incorrect because it is all positive, so it CAN be modeled with all positive tiles2. it can only be modeled with an odd number of tiles -- not true, because 2x^2 is even number of tiles3. it can be modeled with a square -- to be modeled as a square, the polynomial have to be factored into square ie (x+2)², but cann't be factored as square, so again not truetherefore, first one is the answer. because you cannot factor the polynomial as such (x+2)(x+3), so it cannot be modeled with a rectangle.
