What does your problem look like
• Is it a binomial?
• Is it a trinomial?
• Is it a polynomial with 4 or more terms?
Binomial
• Is it the difference between two perfect squares?
• Yes
• No
Trinomials
• One
• A number other than one
Trinomial with leading coefficient other than one
• Positive
• Negative
Last sign positive
• Positive
• Negative
Last sign positive and middle sign positiveUse (ax + c)(bx + d) and check for your middle term
• Are one of your factors difference between two perfect squares
• Yes
• No
Last sign positive and middle sign negativeUse (ax - c)(bx - d) and check for your middle term
• Are one of your factors difference between two perfect squares
• Yes
• No
• Are one of your factors difference between two perfect squares
• Yes
• No
Write as a product of two binomials
• Positive
• Negative
Last sign positive
• Positive
• Negative
Last sign positive and middle sign positiveUse (x + c)(x + d) and check for your middle term
• Are one of your factors difference between two perfect squares
• Yes
• No
Last sign positive and middle sign negativeUse (x - c)(x - d) and check for your middle term
• Are one of your factors difference between two perfect squares
• Yes
• No
• Are one of your factors difference between two perfect squares
• Yes
• No
Polynomial with 4 or more terms
• Group two terms that have a common monomial factor
• Factor out a common binomial factor
• Ex. Ax + Ay + 3x + 3y
• A(x + y) + 3(x + y)
• (x + y)(A + 3)
• Hint look for oppostites
