Factoring

Greatest Common Factor (GCF) Grouping Trinomials – x 2 + bx + c Trinomials – ax 2 + bx + c Differences of Squares Perfect Squares Sums and Differences of Cubes Quadratic Form Combinations Fill in the titles on the foldable

8.2 Greatest Common Factor (top)  Find the GCF of the terms  Write the GCF then the remaining part of each term in parentheses

8.2 Greatest Common Factor (bottom) Ex: 12a 2 + 16aEx: 3p 2 q – 9pq 2 + 36pq

8.2 Factor by Grouping (top)  Group the terms (first two and last two)  Find the GCF of each group  Write each group as a product of the GCF and the remaining factors  Combine the GCFs in a group and write the other group as the second factor

8.2 Factor by Grouping (bottom) Ex: 4ab + 8b + 3a + 6Ex: 3p – 2p 2 – 18p + 27
