To factor trinomials of the form x2 + bx + c:
1. Find two numbers (or factors) whose product ic c and whose sum is b
2. The factors of the trinomial will be of the form:
(x+ factor determined in step one) (x+ other factor determined in step one)
If the nu
The area in which I am most comfortable this week is factoring perfect square trinomials. I think
the formulas used click for me and make more sense than a lot of other mathematic equations.
Please consider the following trinomial:
x2 6x + 9 y2

To factor a monomial from a polynomial, we factor the greatest common factor (GCF) from each
term in the polynomial. The GCF is the product of the factors common to all terms in the
polynomial. For example, the GCF for 6x+15 is 3 since 3 is the larges
