1. ANSWER Notice thatm = –4andn = –5. So, x2 – 9x + 20 = (x – 4)(x – 5). EXAMPLE 1 Factor trinomials of the form x2+ bx + c Factor the expression. a. x2 – 9x + 20 b. x2 + 3x – 12 SOLUTION a.You wantx2 – 9x + 20 = (x + m)(x + n)where mn = 20andm + n = –9.

2. ANSWER Notice that there are no factors mand nsuch that m + n = 3. So, x2 + 3x – 12 cannot be factored. EXAMPLE 1 Factor trinomials of the form x2+ bx + c b.You wantx2 + 3x – 12 = (x + m)(x + n)where mn = – 12andm + n = 3.

3. for Example 1 GUIDED PRACTICE Factor the expression. If the expression cannot be factored, say so. 1. x2 – 3x – 18 2. n2 – 3n + 9 3. r2 + 2r – 63 ANSWER ANSWER ANSWER cannot be factored (x – 6)(x + 3) (r + 9)(r –7)

4. EXAMPLE 2 Factor with special patterns Factor the expression. a. x2 – 49 = x2 – 72 Difference of two squares = (x + 7)(x – 7)

5. for Example 2 GUIDED PRACTICE Factor the expression. 4. x2 – 9 ANSWER (x – 3)(x + 3) 5. q2 – 100 ANSWER (q – 10)(q + 10) 6. y2 + 16y + 64 ANSWER (y + 8)2

6. for Example 2 GUIDED PRACTICE 7. w2 – 18w + 81 (w – 9)2

7. x – 9 = 0 or x + 4 = 0 x = 9 or x = –4 ANSWER The correct answer is C. EXAMPLE 3 Standardized Test Practice SOLUTION x2 – 5x – 36 = 0 Write original equation. (x – 9)(x + 4) = 0 Factor. Zero product property Solve for x.

8. for Examples 3 and 4 GUIDED PRACTICE 8. Solve the equationx2 – x – 42 = 0. ANSWER –6 or 7

9. EXAMPLE 5 Find the zeros of quadratic functions. Find the zeros of the function by rewriting the function in intercept form. a. y = x2 – x – 12 b. y = x2 + 12x + 36 SOLUTION a. y = x2 – x – 12 Write original function. = (x + 3)(x – 4) Factor. The zeros of the function are –3 and 4. CheckGraph y = x2 – x – 12. The graph passes through (–3, 0) and (4, 0).

10. EXAMPLE 5 Find the zeros of quadratic functions. b. y = x2 + 12x + 36 Write original function. = (x + 6)(x + 6) Factor. The zeros of the function is –6 CheckGraph y = x2 + 12x + 36. The graph passes through ( –6, 0).

11. for Example for Example 5 GUIDED PRACTICE GUIDED PRACTICE Find the zeros of the function by rewriting the function in intercept form. 10. y = x2 + 5x – 14 ANSWER –7 and 2 11. y = x2 – 7x – 30 ANSWER –3 and 10

12. EXAMPLE 1 Factor ax2 + bx + c where c > 0 Factor 5x2 – 17x + 6. SOLUTION You want 5x2 – 17x + 6 = (kx + m)(lx + n) where kand lare factors of 5 andmand nare factors of 6. You can assume that kand lare positive and k ≥ l. Because mn> 0, mand nhave the same sign. So, mand nmust both be negative because the coefficient of x, –17, is negative.

13. ANSWER The correct factorization is5x2 –17x + 6 = (5x – 2)(x – 3). EXAMPLE 1 Factor ax2 + bx + c where c > 0

14. ANSWER The correct factorization is3x2 + 20x – 7= (3x – 1)(x + 7). EXAMPLE 2 Factor ax2 + bx + c where c < 0 Factor 3x2 + 20x – 7. SOLUTION You want3x2 + 20x – 7 = (kx + m)(lx + n)wherekandlarefactors of3andmandnare factors of–7. Becausemn < 0, mandn have opposite signs.
