Factoring Special Products and Solving Polynomial Equations
ob: TSW use special product patterns to factor quadratic polynomials and solve a polynomial
equation in factored form.

Solving Polynomial Equations
ob: TSW solve a polynomial equations by factoring.
Example 1: Solve x2 + 8x + 15 = 0
First factor the left side.
( x + 5) ( x + 3) = 0
Then set each factor equal to zero and solve.
x+ 5=0
x = -5
or
x+3=0
x = -3
Example 2: Solv
Factoring Trinomials in the form x2 + bx + c
ob: TSW factor quadratic equations in the form x2 + bx + c.
Example 1: Factor x2 + 14x + 24
First draw the two sets of parentheses. ( ? + ?) ( ? + ?)
Then put in x for the first terms.
( x + ?) ( x + ?)
Then fi
Factoring Trinomials in the form ax2 + bx + c
ob: TSW quadratic equations in the form ax2 + bx + c.
Example 1: Factor 2x2 - 16x + 24
Factor by using the AC method. Multiply the first coefficient by the constant.
2 24 = 48 Now find two factors of 48 that c
Factoring a Polynomial by the GCF
ob: TSW factor a polynomial by removing the GCF.
Example 1: Factor 30x2 + 12x - 18
Write each term of the polynomial in prime factored form.
2 3 5x x + 22 3x - 23 3
Now use the greatest numerical factor that appears in ev
Factor by Grouping
ob: TSW factor polynomials by grouping.
Example 1: Factor x3 - x2 + x - 1
Decide if you can find a common factor between the terms. Notice that the first two terms and the
last two terms can use the opposite of the distributive property
