MCAS QUESTION OF THE DAY:
2017 Spring Release, Mathematics  Grade 10
Question 8  MultipleChoice
Reporting Category: Algebra and Functions
Standard: 10.P.4  Demonstrate facility in symbolic manipulation of polynomial and rational expressions by rearranging and collecting terms; factoring (e.g., a
^{2}
 b
^{2}
= (a + b)(a  b), x
^{2}
+ 10x + 21 = (x + 3)(x + 7), 5x
^{4}
+ 10x
^{3}
 5x
^{2}
= 5x
^{2}
(x
^{2}
+ 2x  1)); identifying and canceling common factors in rational expressions; and applying the properties of positive integer exponents. (AI.P.8)
Standard: Mathematics.A.SSE.1.02  Use the structure of an expression to identify ways to rewrite it.
For example, see x
^{4}
– y
^{4}
as (x²)² – (y²)², thus recognizing it as a difference of squares that can be factored as (x² – y²)(x² + y²).
Which of the following is equivalent to the expression below?
${x}^{2}5x24$
A.
$\left(x6\right)\left(x+4\right)$
B.
$\left(x+6\right)\left(x4\right)$
C.
$\left(x+8\right)\left(x3\right)$
D.
$\left(x8\right)\left(x+3\right)$
