**Multiplying and Factoring Polynomials**Tuesday, October 29, 2013**Remember, to add polynomials, you combine like terms.**• To subtract polynomials, you add the opposite. • So, how do you multiply polynomials??? Performing operations**When multiplying, multiply the constants, then the**variables. • Remember to use the laws of exponents (when multiplying you add the exponents). • Ex: 2x2 * 5x3 = 10x5 How do I multiply monomials?**To multiply a monomial and a polynomial, you simply**distribute. • Ex: 2x2 (3x3 – 4x2 + x – 5) 6x5 – 8x4 + 2x3 – 10x2 How do I multiply a monomial and a polynomial?**FOIL – multiply first, outside, inside, then last**(basically distribute) • Box it – draw a box, put the numbers in, multiply and add like terms. How do I multiply a binomial by a binomial?**1) Distribute 2) Line up your like terms 3) Add**• Or… Box it Ex: (2x2 – 3x + 4) (x4 + 2x3 – 4x – 3) 2x6 + 4x5 – 8x3 – 6x2 – 3x5 – 6x4 + 12x2+9x + 4x4 + 8x3 – 16x – 12 2x6 + x5 – 2x4 + 6x2 – 7x – 12 How do I multiply a polynomial by a polynomial?**1. 5(x +2)**• 2. -2x2 (-2 + 6xy) • 3. (x + 2) (x + 5) • 4. (3x + 10) (2x – 5) • 5. (x + 2) (x2 + 5x + 6) • *Bonus* • (x2 – 2x + 1) (x2 + 5x + 6) Classwork**Factoring Fanatic**Uncover the mystery of factoring complex trinomials!**Tic-Tac-But No ToePart 1: In the following tic tac’s**there are four numbers. Find the relationship that the two numbers on the right have with the two numbers on the left. Observations 1. What did you find? 2. Did it follow the pattern every time?**Tic-Tac-But No ToePart 2: Use your discoveries from Part 1**to complete the following Tic Tac’s. • Did your discovery work in every case? • Can you give any explanation for this? Observations**Finally! Factoring with a Frenzy!**• Arrange the expression in descending (or ascending) order. ax2 + bx + c = 0 • Be sure the leading coefficient is positive. • Factor out the GCF, if necessary. • Multiply the coefficients “a” and “c” and put the result in quadrant II of the Tic Tac. • Put the coefficient “b” in quadrant III of the Tic Tac. • Play the game! Just like the previous problems. (Find the relationship!)**Once you have completed your Tic Tac– WHERE’S the**ANSWER? • Use the “a” coefficient as the numerator of two fractions. Use the results in quadrants I and IV as the two denominators. • Reduce the fractions. • The numerator is your coefficient for x in your binominal and the denominator is the constant term. • EXAMPLE: If you get the fractions ½ and -3/5, your answer would be (x + 2) (3x – 5).**EXAMPLES**X2 – X - 12 What 2 numbers complete the Tic Tac? Since a = 1, put a 1 in for the numerator in two fractions. You found 3 and -4. These are the denominators for the two fractions. Your fractions are 1/3 and –1/4 Your answer is (x + 3) (x – 4).**EXAMPLES**3X2 + 5X = 12 *Remember to re-write in standard form 3X2 + 5X - 12 What 2 numbers complete the Tic Tac? Since a = 3, put a 3 in for the numerator in two fractions. You found 9 and -4. These are the denominators for the two fractions. Your fractions are 3/9 = 1/3 and –3/4 Your answer is (x + 3) (3x – 4).**EXAMPLES**2X2 + 8X - 64 *Remember that sometimes a GCF should be factored out before beginning. 2(X2 + 4X – 32) What 2 numbers complete the Tic Tac? Since a = 1, put a 1 in for the numerator in two fractions. You found 8 and -4. These are the denominators for the two fractions. Your fractions are 1/8 and –1/4. Your answer is 2 (x + 8) (x – 4).**EXAMPLES**1/2X2 + 1/2X - 6 *Remember that sometimes a GCF should be factored out before beginning. 1/2(X2 + X – 12) What 2 numbers complete the Tic Tac? Since a = 1, put a 1 in for the numerator in two fractions. You found -3 and 4. These are the denominators for the two fractions. Your fractions are –1/3 and 1/4. Your answer is ½ (x – 3) (x + 4).**1. b2 + 8b + 7**• 2. m2 + m – 90 • 3. n2 – 10n + 9 • 4. k2 – 13k + 40 • 5. 2p2 + 2p – 4 • *Bonus* • 7a2 + 53a + 28 Classwork**Multiplying Binomials (Factoring Trinomials) Square Puzzle**Homework**Do you prefer the FOIL or Box method for multiplying**binomials?
