Objective: you will factor quadratic polynomials into a pair of binomials

OUTLINE
• Put in descending order of exponents like ax²+bx+c and multiply a*c
• Find two numbers whose product is (a*c), BUT whose sum is ‘b’
• Rewrite ax²+ [larger factor]x + [smaller factor]x +c ( larger factor takes the same sign as ‘b’)
• Factor the first pair of terms and factor the second pair of terms(by dividing out the common factor for each pair and if the 3rd term is negative, then factor it out also)
• Factor out the common binomial factor
• Write as a pair of binomials
Order and multiply a*c

Find factors of (a*c), but their sum is ‘b’

Write the new polynomial

Double Factor

Factor the binomial
