We will explore factoring trinomials using the ac method with grouping next and come back to Perfect Square Trinomials later.

Factoring Trinomials

by

Using The

AC Method

With

Grouping

Factor the trinomial completely.

The first rule of factoring is to factor out the Greatest Common Factor(GCF).

Stop! Check that you have factored the (GCF)correctly by distributing it back through the remaining polynomial to obtain the original trinomial.

After factoring out the (GCF), the remaining polynomial is of the form

To factor , we must find two integers whose product is ac and whose sum is b.

To factor , we must find two integers whose product is -60 and whose sum is 7.

ac = b = 7

Replace b = 7 in our original expression with

b = 12 + (-5).

What purpose does factoring serve?

Factoring is an algebraic process which allows us to solve quadratic equations pertaining to real-world applications, such as remodeling a kitchen or building a skyscraper.

We will cover the concept of solving quadratic equations and then investigate some real-world applications.

A quadratic equation is an equation that can be written in standard form

where a, b, and c represent real numbers, and

We will solve some quadratic equations

using factoring and the

Zero-Factor Property.

When the product of two real numbers is 0, at least one of them is 0.

If a and b represent real numbers, and

if then a=0 or b=0

Solve Each Equation
