Section 4.4 – Factoring Quadratic Expressions Factors of a given number are numbers that have a product equal to the given numbers. Factors of a given expression are expressions that have a product equal to the given expression. Factoring is rewriting an expression as a product of its factors.

Section 4.4 – Factoring Quadratic Expressions Essential Understanding: You can use the Distributive Property or the FOIL method to multiply two binomials. (x + 4)(x+2) = _____________

Section 4.4 – Factoring Quadratic Expressions Essential Understanding: To factor x 2 + 6x + 8, think FOIL in reverse. Find two binomials for which the first terms have the product of x 2, the products of the outer and the inner have the sum of 6x, and the last terms have the product of 8. x 2 + 6x + 8 = ___________________

Section 4.4 – Factoring Quadratic Expressions Problem 1: What is the expression in factored form? x 2 + 9x + 20

Section 4.4 – Factoring Quadratic Expressions Problem 1: What is the expression in factored form? -x 2 + 14x + 32

Section 4.4 – Factoring Quadratic Expressions The greatest common factor (GCF) of an expression is a common factor of the terms in the expression. It is the common factor with the greatest coefficient and the greatest exponent.

Section 4.4 – Factoring Quadratic Expressions A perfect square trinomial is a trinomial that is the square of a binomial. For example, x 2 + 10x + 25 = (x+5) 2

Section 4.4 – Factoring Quadratic Expressions If ax 2 +bx +c is a perfect square trinomial, then ax 2 and c are squares of the terms of the binomial and thus are both positive. bx is twice the product of the terms of the binomial.
