1. An expression is shown below:

3x3y + 12xy – 3x2y – 12y

Part A: Rewrite the expression so that the GCF is factored completely. (3 points)

Part B: Rewrite the expression completely factored. Show the steps of your work. (4 points)

Part C: If the two middle terms were switched so that the expression became 3x3y – 3x2y + 12xy – 12y would the factored expression no longer be equivalent to your answer in part B? Explain your reasoning. (3 points)

Part B: Rewrite x2- 4x + 4 as a square of a linear expression. (3 points)

Part C: Do the expressions in parts A and B have a common factor? Justify your answer. (2 points)
