3/

**Factor out the greatest common factor:**a) tx ^{2}- 4txy + 7 txy^{2}b) 4x + 8x ^{2}y - 24xy^{3}c) -25 x ^{3}y^{2 }z^{7}+ 50 x^{2 }y z^{5}- 100 x^{2}y z^{3}.d) 18m ^{2}n^{4}- 27m^{4 }n^{2}- 81m^{3}n^{5}.e) -7a ^{3 }b^{3}+ 14a^{7}b^{4}- 28a^{4 }b^{7}.4/

if it is invested for 3 years and 6 months?.

10) Find the difference in the amount Ryan will earn if he invests $10,000 at 4% per annum

compound interest for 3 years instead of investing the same amount at simple interest

of 4% per annum for 3 years..
