# Make the given changes in the indicated examples of this section and then factor. In Example 8, change the 8

## Question:

Make the given changes in the indicated examples of this section and then factor.

In Example 8, change the 8 to 36.

**Data from Example 8**

When factoring 2x^{2} + 6x − 8, first note the common factor of 2. This leads to 2x^{2} + 6x − 8 = 2(x^{2} + 3x − 4)

Now, notice that x^{2} + 3x − 4 is also factorable. Therefore, 2x^{2} + 6x − 8 = 2(x + 4)(x − 1)
