Factoring Trinomials NEXT

Problem 1 Product: x 2 + 6x + 8 Step 1: Place the x 2 model in the upper-left region. NEXT

Problem 1 Product: x 2 + 6x + 8 Step 2:Place the unit models in the lower-right region. There may be more than one possible configuration. Experiment to determine which configuration will allow the appropriate number of x tiles. NEXT

Problem 1 Product: x 2 + 6x + 8 Step 3: Determine the number of x models needed to complete the rectangle. This configuration requires 9 x tiles. However, it should only have 6 x tiles. NEXT

Problem 1 Product: x 2 + 6x + 8 Try another configuration. This configuration requires 6 x tiles. NEXT

Problem 1 Product: x 2 + 6x + 8 Determine the dimensions. x4 x 2 x + 4 x + 2 x 2 + 6x + 8 = (x + 4)(x + 2) NEXT
