Oh, we are back to this problem again!

Do you think Trial & Error or Grouping

will work easily on this problem?

Factoring Steps for Grouping

– 6x2 – x + 2

If you don’t think so, most people would agree with you.

What if I told you there was a different way that would work for the simple problems as well

as for problems like the one above?

Factoring Steps for Grouping

– 6x2 – x + 2

Well, let’s try the “Front times the Back” Method!!

Factoring Steps

1A. Factor out GCF, if necessary.

1B. Make x2 term positive, if necessary.

• Carry the GCF and / or – sign and put in front of ( ) ( ) in answer.

Factoring Steps

Do “Front times the Back” and get an answer.

“Front times the Back” means to multiply coefficient

of the x2 term (NUMBER ONLY NOT SIGN)

and the constant (NUMBER ONLY NOT SIGN).

Factoring Steps

3. Find the factors of the “Front times the Back’s”

to equal the middle term.

When these factors are multiplied,

must equal the

sign of the constant.

This step is very important because it

will eliminate the extraneous (extra) solutions.

5A. Separate the x2 into x • x.

5B. Write one x in the front of each ( )( ).

5C. Then write the factors in the back of each ( )( ).

(x + 3) (x + 5)

Divide only the numbers in the ( )( )

by the positive coefficient of x2.

Divide out common terms.

(aka: Simplify fractions.)

If there is a whole # left, that ( ) is finished.

If there is a fraction left, the denominator becomes the coefficient of x and the numerator is now the constant in the ( ).

Example: (x + 2) (x + ¾)

(x+2) ( 4x + 3) = answer

This is now in factored form.

TO SOLVE FOR X:

Set each ( ) equal to 0 and solve for x.

Example: (x + 3) ( x + 5) = 0

x + 3 = 0x + 5 = 0

x = 0 – 3 x = 0 – 5

x = – 3 x = – 5

If x equals – 3 or – 5, then at least one factor will be equal to 0 which will cause the left side to be 0. So 0 = 0 is true and the answer is x = {-3, -5}.

Now let’s try some . . .

Now here are some

practice problems. . .

x2 + 4x + 3

x2 + 4x + 3

Step 1: No GCF

Step 2: “Front times the Back”

Step 3A: What factors of 3 add to = +4? AND

Step 3B: Do signs multiply to equal a + #?

x2 + 4x + 3

x2+3x +1x + 3

• x2 + 4x + 3

• x2+3x +1x + 3

• Now separate the x2 into x • x

• Put each x into ( ) ( )

• Put the two red #s into ( ) ( )

1x2 + 4x + 3

x2+3x +1x + 3

( x +3) ( x +1)

Now, divide by the coefficient of x2.

1x2 + 4x + 3

x2+3x +1x + 3

( x +3) ( x +1)

1 1

1x2 + 4x + 3

x2+3x +1x + 3

( x +3) ( x +1)

1 1

Since dividing by 1 does not change the numbers, we have discovered that if the coefficient of x2 is 1, then we can eliminate the dividing by the x2 coefficient step.

Therefore,

the Factored Form of

x2 + 4x + 3

is (x+3) (x+1).

Now, let’s try another problem.
