1 Factoring with Algebra Tiles

2 Factoring Polynomials Factoring is the process of writing a polynomial as a product. Algebra tiles can be used to factor polynomials. Use tiles and the frame to represent the problem. Use the tiles to fill in the array so as to form a rectangle inside the frame. Be prepared to use zero pairs to fill in the array. 2

3 Factoring Polynomials 3x + 3 2x – 6 3 = 3 · (x + 1) = 2 · (x – 3)

4 Factoring Polynomials x 2 + 6x + 8 = (x + 2)(x + 4)

5 Factoring Polynomials x 2 – 5x + 6 = (x – 2)(x – 3) Remember: You must form a RECTANGLE out of the polynomial

6 Factoring Polynomials x 2 – x – 6 = (x + 2)(x – 3) This time the polynomial doesnt form a rectangle, so I have to add zero pairs in order to form a rectangle.
