MATH 105­ Funtulis Multiplying Binomials and Trinomials­ 2/1/16 Like Terms­ terms with the same variable combination and the same exponents on variables. Ex.  3xyz and 1xyz are like terms. Factor­ an individual part of a product; factoring is the reverse of multiplying, meaning the final  product is factored to arrive at the factors we started with. The FOIL Method: example (x + 2) (x + 1) First = x times x = x^2 Outer = x times 1 = x Inner = 2 times x = 2x Last = 2 times 1 = 2 Then combine like terms. Result: x^2 + 3x + 2. The Distributive Rule: A term on the outside of the parentheses (or other grouping symbol) that is not separated from  the parentheses by addition or subtraction is distributed into the parentheses. Example: (x + 2) (x + 1) can be written as x (x + 1) + 2 (x + 1). The x is multiplied into (x + 1)  and the 2 is multiplied into (x + 1). The result is x^2 + x + 2x + 2, or x^2 + 3x + 2. **Multiplying a binomial by a trinomial works in a similar fashion. Ex. (x + 2) (x^2 + 4x + 4)  distribute the x from (x + 2) to the x^2 , 4x , and 4 in the trinomial. Then distribute the 2 from the (x + 2) in the same way. Combine like terms to arrive at final answer.** MATH 105­ Funtulis Special Cases­ 2/3/16 Degree­ the highest power of the variable (simple case); when using multiple variables, the  highest sum of the variables. Leading Coefficient­ coefficient of leading or highest power term. Greatest Common Factor­ the term you can factor out of each part of the equation. Ex. 8x^2 +  16x +24; GCF is 8. Equation can then be written as 8 (x^2 + 2x + 3). When factoring quadratic expressions (x^2 + bx + c) with a leading coefficient of 1, we look for  two numbers that multiply to c and add to b. Difference of Squares: a^2 – b^2 = (a – b) (a + b) **Anything that factors into real numbers crosses the x­axis when graphed.** Special Products:  (a + b)^2 = (a + b ) (a + b) or a^2 + 2ab + b^2 (a – b)^2 = ((a – b) (a – b) or a^2 – 2ab + b^2
