Week 5 - Discussion 1FactoringFactoringax2+bx+cwitha= 1 To find the product of the binomialsx+mandx+n,wherexis the variable andmandnare constants, we use the distributive property. The“Distributive Property” which is sometimes referred to as the distributive law, says that you aredistributing something as you separate or break it into parts. The distributive property makesnumbers easier to work with. In algebra when we use the distributive property, we are expandingor distributing. I will use this strategy on the problem from page 345 using the numbers for mydescribed assignment.#62).Original equation from page 345 of the textbook.The polynomial does not appear to befactorablewith rationalenumbers.To solve this equation you have to find the roots of thequadratic equation. You would have tofactorit as a trinomial.#70).Original equation from page 345 of the textbook.Aftergroupingthe original equation. This polynomial has 2 terms.
