MartinGay, Beginning and Intermediate Algebra, 4ed 4 Factoring by Grouping Example : Factor by grouping: 8 x 2 + 10 x3 (2 x + 3)(4 x1) = 8 x 2 + 10 x3 Check: Find two numbers that we can multiply together to get 24 and add together to get 10. ____ × ____ = 24 ____ + ____ = 10 12 12 (2) (2) The value of ac is 24. Rewrite 10 x as 12 x + (2 x ). 8 x 2 + 10 x3 = 8 x 2 + 12 x2 x3 Factor by grouping. = 4 x (2 x + 3) 1(2 x + 3) = (2 x + 3)(4 x1) Factor out (2 x + 3)....
