# GCSE maths factorisation watch

1. how would you factorise 3r^2 + 2n^2 - 10/3*n*r to make it equal r or n
2. that's an expression, you can't make anything equal anything in an expression. you need two expressions with a common relationship to make an equation.
3. how would you factorise 3r^2 + 2n^2 - 10/3*n*r = 0 to make it equal r or n

well,to make life easier u can multiply everything by 3...........

Are you trying to solve the equation and find values of r and n?

And which one is the right equation?

3r^2 + 2n^2 - (10/3)(n)(r) = 0

OR

3r^2 + 2n^2 - 10/(3nr) = 0
6. r or n and

3r^2 + 2n^2 - (10/3)*nr = 0
7. (Original post by silent p......?)
r or n and

3r^2 + 2n^2 - (10/3)*nr = 0
multiply by 3 to get 9r^2 + 6n^2 -10nr=0,which errrr cannot be simplified to (an+br)(cn+dr)=0
8. it's impossible?
9. (Original post by silent p......?)
it's impossible?
sorry to break it 2 ya
10. (Original post by silent p......?)
r or n and

3r^2 + 2n^2 - (10/3)*nr = 0
9r² - 10nr +6n² = 0

r = [10n+-√(100n²-216n)]/18
OR
n = [10r +-√(100r²-216r)]/12

this only works for 0 >= n,r or n,r >= 2.16
