Section 10.6 Factoring Objectives: Factor a quadratic expression of the form Solve quadratic equations by factoring

Factoring a quadratic trinomial In this section, you will learn to factor quadratic polynomials whose leading coefficient is NOT 1. Find the factors of and the factors of so that the sum or difference of the outer and inner products is When is positive you want a sum and when it is negative you want a difference

EX:Factor the trinomial, if possible 1. 2.

EX: Factor the trinomial, if possible 3.4.

EX: Factor the trinomial, if possible 5.6.

EX: Factor the trinomial, if possible 7.8.

Difference of Two Squares A binomial of the difference of two perfect square terms has a special factoring rule Note this only works when there is a minus between the two squares

EX: Factor 9. 11. 10.

EX: Solve the equation 12. 14. 13.
