3 StandardStudents apply basic factoring techniques to second- and simple third-degree polynomials. These techniques include finding a common factor for all terms in a polynomial, recognizing the difference of two squares, and recognizing perfect squares of binomials.Objective: We will use the x-box method to factor trinomials.
4 Factor the x-box wayWe are going to factor trinomials like 3x2 + 27x + 60 using the X-Box method.Step 1: Write the polynomial in standard form.Step 2: Factor all common factors in the trinomial.Step 3: Use the X method.Step 4: Write your answer.Step 5: Check your answer by distributing
