How To : Factor polynomials by grouping

A factoring problem that has to be solved by grouping is easy to identify, because you can always identify if there are any similar terms in a polynomial. Now, if you find any variable common in any terms pull them out as the common leaving the rest of the terms. After pulling ...more

How To : Factor a trinomial, GCF, then unfoil

In this video the instructor shows how to factor a polynomial. A polynomial having three terms is called as trinomial. Now if you factor it you will obtain two binomials whose product will be the original polynomial. Before factoring a polynomial you need to find out if the po ...more

How To : Factor trinomials in a very simple way

In this video, they demonstrate how to factor a trinomial. A trinomial is a polynomial with a quadratic term in the form, ax^2+bx+c. To factor this polynomial first multiply the a and c term. You must fine two numbers that multiply to a*c and add up to b. Once you have figured ...more

How To : Factor a trinomial

In this video the instructor shows how to factor a general quadratic polynomial. Here the first step is to identify the coefficient of the squared term. Write the reciprocal of the numerical coefficient of the squared term out side and write two separate parenthesis which are ...more

How To : Multiply algebraic fractions

This video offers some insight into a few more difficult concepts of mathematics by teaching you how to multiply algebraic fractions. Given polynomials in fraction form, you should first try to factor all your polynomials into their simplest form in the hopes that some factors ...more

How To : Use the Grouping factoring method

This video is about using the grouping factoring method. We're using a four term polynomial. There is a even number of terms. We can break them into two groups of 2. The first group of "2" the common factor is "a." The last group, the common factor is "-2b". The reason we use ...more

How To : Factor the GCF and difference of squares

In this video the instructor shows how to factor the GCF and difference of squares. When you are asked to factorize a number or monomial or a polynomial, the way to do is break it down into individual terms. When asked to factorize a binomial, try to pull out any common terms ...more

How To : Use the Difference of Squares factoring method

For more advanced math, you will need to use the difference of squares in order to factor certain polynomials. This video offers the basic technique for this factoring method as well as a few examples to get you started. In order for this factoring technique to work, you will ...more
