Funtulis­ MATH 105 Factoring Trinomials – 2/10/16 2 A trinomial (quadratic) with a leading coefficient of 1; ax  + bx + c, where a, b, and c are real  numbers and none of them are zero. Rules of Thumb: For non­zero a, b, and c, in which b and c are greater than zero, 2 1. ax  + bx + c = (x +   ) (x +   ) 2. ax  ­ bx + c = (x ­   ) (x ­   ) 2 3. ax  + bx ­ c = (x +   ) (x ­   ) 4. ax  ­ bx ­ c = (x +   ) (x ­   ) To factor x  + 7x + 12, find numbers that both add to 7 and multiply to 12.  Answer: (x + 3) (x + 4). To factor 7x (x + y) – (x + y), factor out the Greatest Common Factor (x + y). Answer: (x + y) (7x – 1). Factoring by Grouping: Polynomial must have 4 terms Factor out the GCFs of both the first and second sets of terms. 2 2 2 2 Ex. mp  + 7m + 3p  + 21 can be split down the middle into mp  + 7m and 3p  + 21; then take the  GCF out of each binomial.  m(p  + 7) and 3(p  + 7). 2 Funtulis­ MATH 105 2 Answer: (m + 3) (p  + 7) Advice for Trial and Error: First try factors of a number that are close together. Ex. Factors of 6:  1 and 6, 2 and 3. AC Method: determine what two numbers add to b and multiply to c in the format ax  + bx + c. 2 Rewrite to have a polynomial with four terms and then factor by grouping.
