Chapter 5.2 Factoring by Grouping

3y (2x – 7)( ) (2x – 7) (2x – 7) – 8 3y 1. Factor. GCF = (2x – 7) Find the GCF. Divide each term by the GCF. (2x – 7) – 8 (2x – 7)

Factoring by grouping (4 terms). 1. See if there is a GCF of all terms. 2. The product of the 1 st and 4 th terms must be equal to the product of the 2 nd and 3 rd terms. If not rewrite them. 3. Factor the GCF from the 1 st and 2 nd terms. 4. Factor the GCF from the 3 rd and 4 th terms so that the expressions in both parentheses are the same. 5. Factor one more time, the expression from the parentheses.

6x 2 (2x – 5)( ) 3x 2 3x + 2 1. GCF = -60x 2 -60x 2 3x( ) 2x – 5 + 2( ) 2x – 5 (2x – 5) (2x – 5) – 15x+ 4x– 10 2. Is the product of 1 st and 4 th terms = to 2 nd and 3 rd terms? YES, now factor. 2. Factor. 1 3. The GCF = 3x 4. The GCF = 2 5. The GCF = (2x – 5)

No, now rewrite it and check. 4. Factor. 1 3. The GCF = 2a 4. The GCF = c 5. The GCF = (3a + 5b) 6a 2 + 10ab+ 3ac+ 5bc 30a 2 bc 30a 2 bc
