  1. >> Only three of these are actually fully factored, these three down here. 3x
  2. plus 2 times 5x minus 3, x plus 1 times x minus 1, and surprisingly perhaps, 3
  3. times the quantity x squared plus 1. In the first choice, the second factor, 6x
  4. plus 9, is actually the same as 3 times the quantity 2x plus 3. So since we can
  5. factor this more, it's not fully factored. Similarly, 10x minus 15 can be
  6. factored to equal 5 times the quantity 2x minus 3. X squared minus 1, as we
  7. learned earlier, can be factored as x plus 1 times x minus 1. And the expression
  8. x squared minus 4x plus 4, which we see multiplied by 5 here, is the same as x
  9. minus 2 squared.
