2 Factoring Chart This chart will help you to determine which method of factoring to use. TypeNumber of Terms 1. GCF 2 or more 2. Diff. Of Squares 2 3.Trinomials 3 4.Grouping 4

3 Review: (3y + 2)(y + 4) Multiply using FOIL. FOIL: Combine like terms. 3y ² + 12y + 2y + 8 = 3y ² + 14y + 8 y² + (12 + 2)y + (2)(12) How would you get 24 from the 2 nd step? * You need the factors of ac that add to = b.

4 ax 2 + bx + c * If p and q are factors of ac that add to = b and p > q. ax 2 + bx + c ax 2 - bx + c (x+p)(x+q) (x-p)(x-q) ax 2 + bx – c ax 2 – bx - c (x+p)(x-q) (x-p)(x+q)

5 1) Factor. 3 y y + 8 Create a table as shown below. Factors of ac: Multiply the 1st and last coefficients: 3(8) = 24 Sum of b: Middle coefficient: 14 Factors of +24 Sum of +14 1, 24 2, = 14* 3, 8 4, 6

6 1)Factor. 3 y y + 8 ( x + 12) (x + 2) now divide or reduce 12 and 2 by your a (a= 3) ( x + 12) (x + 2) *After you reduce, if there is a number left in the denominator, you take it to the front of the factor. ___ 3 ___ 3

7 y ( x + 12) (x + 2) ___ 3 ___ 3 = ( x + 4) (3x + 2)

8 2) Factor. 5 x x + 14 Factors of: Multiply the 1st and last coefficients. Sum of: Middle Term Factors of +70 Sum of -17

9 Factor. 5 x x + 14 Factors of +70 Sum of , ( x - 10) (x – 7) now reduce 10 and 7 by your a (a= 5)

10 ( x - 10) (x – 7) *After you reduce, if there is a number left in the denominator, you take it to the front of the factor. ___ 5 ___ 5 =( x - 2) (5x – 7)

12 It is not the easiest of things to do, but the more problems you do, the easier it gets! Trust me! 3) Factor. 2 x 2 + 9x + 10 (2x + 5)(x + 2)

13 4)12y y – 10 ****Do not forget** 1 st Step: Check to Factor GCF GCF: 2 2( 6y y – 5)

14 Now we need to find the factors of ac that + to = b Factors of ac: a=6 and c = -5 so ac = -30. Sum of b: -13

15 2( 6y y – 5) Factors of -30 Sum of -13 1, -30 2, = -13 3, -10 5, -6

16 Now reduce by the a term (a = 6) 2(y + 2)(y – 15) 2 ( y + 1)( y – 5) 2(2y-5)(3y+1) ___ 6 ___ 6 ___ 3 ___ 2

17 5) -12x x + 5 -(3x-1)(4x+5) 6) 5x x 2 1st reorder: x 2 + 5x - 6 (x-1)(x+6)
