Find the degree of each polynomial.
A. 11x7 + 3x3 D. x3y2 + x2y3 – x4 + 2 7 5 B. 4 C. 5x – 6 1 The degree of a polynomial is the degree of the term with the greatest degree.

Objectives Factor perfect-square trinomials.
Factor the difference of two squares.

A trinomial is a perfect square if:
• The first and last terms are perfect squares. • The middle term is two times one factor from the first term and one factor from the last term. 9x x 3x 3x 2(3x 2) 2 2

Determine whether each trinomial is a perfect square. If so, factor
Determine whether each trinomial is a perfect square. If so, factor. If not explain. 9x2 – 15x + 64 8 8 3x 3x 2(3x 8) 2(3x 8) ≠ –15x. 9x2 – 15x + 64 is not a perfect-square trinomial because –15x ≠ 2(3x  8).

The trinomial is a perfect square. Factor.

Determine whether each trinomial is a perfect square. If so, factor. If not explain. 36x2 – 10x + 14 The trinomial is not a perfect-square because 14 is not a perfect square.

The trinomial is a perfect square. Factor.
Determine whether each trinomial is a perfect square. If so, factor. If not explain. x x 2 2 2(x 2) x2 + 4x + 4 The trinomial is a perfect square. Factor.

A rectangular piece of cloth must be cut to make a tablecloth
A rectangular piece of cloth must be cut to make a tablecloth. The area needed is (16x2 – 24x + 9) in2. The dimensions of the cloth are of the form cx – d, where c and d are whole numbers. Find an expression for the perimeter of the cloth. Find the perimeter when x = 11 inches. 16x2 – 24x + 9 16x2 – 24x + 9

A polynomial is a difference of two squares if:
In Chapter 7 you learned that the difference of two squares has the form a2 – b2. The difference of two squares can be written as the product (a + b)(a – b). You can use this pattern to factor some polynomials. A polynomial is a difference of two squares if: There are two terms, one subtracted from the other. Both terms are perfect squares. 4x2 – 9 2x 2x

Recognize a difference of two squares: the coefficients of variable terms are perfect squares, powers on variable terms are even, and constants are perfect squares. Reading Math
