So for this polynomial, we will be completing the square. Firstly, what two terms have a product of 20m^2 and a sum of -12m? That would be -10m and -2m. Replace -12m with -2m - 10m:
Next, factor m^2 - 2m and -10m + 20 separately. Make sure that they have the same quantity inside of the parentheses:
Now you can rewrite this expression as . <u>(m - 10) and (m - 2) are your two factors.</u>
If the number underlined is two, then it will rounding to the hundredths place. Since the number after it is 7, which is greater than 5, we get 81.73.
