Factoring Review Sheet
Factoring out a common term:
Look to see if there is a greatest common factor (GCF) in all the terms to factor out.
Factor it out and leave it on the outside of the parenthesis.

Part I: Factoring out the Greatest Common Factoring (GCF)
Introductory Level GCF
Factor 3a + 9
Step 1: Identify the GCF
The square of a number is that number times itself. 5 squared, denoted 52 , is equal to 55 , or 25. 2 squared is 22 = 22 = 4 . One way to remember the term "square" is that there are two dimensions in a square (height and width) and the number bei
Indicate whether the statement is true or false.
1. The maximum number of solutions a rational equation can have is indicated by the degree of the polynomial
in the numerator.

Unit 1: Thinking Polynomials
1. Explain why odd-degree polynomial functions can have only local maximums and local
minimums, but even degree polynomial functions can have absolute maximum and minimums.
2. Decide whether the
