When you have a binomial multiplied by a polynomial, you will use the distributive
property for each term in the first polynomial.
Another way to think about it is to use a method called FOIL (first, outside, inside,
7-8 Special Products of Binomials
Perfect-square trinomial- a trinomial that is the result of squaring a binomial
Difference of two squares- (a + b)(a b) = a2 b2. A binomial for the form a2 b2
is called the difference of two squares.
Ex 1: M

When factoring x2
If c If c is positive
and and b is positive, both factors are positive.
and and b is negative, both factors are negative.
Example 1: Factor t2 7t 10. Check your answer.
We need factors of 10 that sum to 7.

To factor when the value of a is greater than one, we can use the box method.
1) Write your first and last terms in a 4 by 4 box where the F an

A _has exactly two factors, itself and 1. The number 1 is not a prime number.
To write the prime factorization of a number, factor the number into its prime factors only.
Example 1: Find the prime factorization of
