Factorize m³ – m² + 2m – 2

A. (m2 + 1)(m – 2)

B. (m – 1)(m + 1)(m + 2)

C. (m – 2)(m + 1)(m – 1)

D. (m2 + 2)(m – 1)

QUICK ANSWER…

D

DETAILS…

Factorization of m³ – m² + 2m – 2 gives (m2 + 2)(m – 1).

m³ – m² + 2m – 2

= (m³ – m²) + (2m – 2)

= m²(m – 1) + (2m – 2)

= m²(m – 1) + 2(m – 1)

= (m – 1)(m² + 2)

= (m2 + 2)(m – 1)

Now for the right answer to the above question:

  1. Option A is incorrect.
  2. Option B is not correct.
  3. C is incorrect.
  4. D is the correct answer.
