How To: Apply the distributive property in math

To solve simple algebraic expressions you have to use different properties. Distributive property is one among them. To apply distributive property in a algebraic expression multiply each term inside the parenthesis by the outside term. In this way you are distributing the outside term to all the inside terms and removing the parenthesis. Hence it is called distributive property. After multiplying add the like terms to simplify it further. Care should be taken to ensure the proper sign change...

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 going to contain the binomials which are the factors of the original equation. The first term of both the binomials is the first term numerical coefficient times the unknown variable. Now multiply the first term numerica...

How To: Multiply rational expressions with opposite signs

In this video the instructor shows how to multiply and write rational expressions in lowest terms. The fist thing you need to do is cancel out the common factors in the numerator and the denominator. You can cancel a term in the top with a term in the bottom even if they are diagonal as long as one is in numerator and the other is in the denominator. After cancellation if you have a term in numerator and an identical term in the denominator but with opposite signs, then pull out the negative ...

How To: Identify similar terms in polynomials

In this tutorial the instructor shows how to identify similar terms in a polynomial equation. He states that in similar terms the variables and their exponents are exactly the same but they may differ in the co-efficient. He shows how to identify similar terms by using some examples. He shows that a change is even the co-efficient makes them dissimilar terms. Similar terms can be further added as the variable of both the terms is same. This video gives an idea of what similar terms are and ho...

How To: Multiply binomials with the FOIL method

Multiplying polynomials is a distributive property. If you are given with two binomials and asked to multiply them, you need to apply the distributive property and multiply the terms of binomial with the terms of second binomial. To do this first take a term of first binomial and multiply it with the second complete binomial. Now take the second term of first binomial and multiply it with the second binomial adding or subtracting it from the previous result depending on the sign between the f...

How To: Simplify radical expressions

In this video the instructor shows who to simplify radicals. If you have a term inside a square root the first thing you need to do is try to factorize it. First factorize the numerical term. Write down the numerical terms as a product of any perfect squares. Now split the original radical expression in the form of individual terms of different variables. Now you can pull out the perfect square numerical factors out of the radical. Similarly for the variable terms write the variables as power...

How To: Complete the square and solve the quadratic equation

In order to solve a quadratic equation by completing the square, take a quadratic equation and make sure that the coefficient of the first squared term in one. If it is not factor it by pulling the term out to get it to one. Now just write down the first two terms in side a bracket and after it add the third term. Now take the coefficient of the x term and take one half of it and square it and put that number back into the bracket. Now as you added a new number, to cancel it out subtract it f...

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 out the common terms you can group the rest of the polynomial. Be careful while pulling out signs. Pulling out a positive number does not effect the signs of terms in the polynomial, where as pulling out a negative numb...

How To: Factor trinomials

In this video, the instructor shows how to factor trinomials. An equation is a trinomial if it has three terms. If you factor a trinomial, you are left with two binomials which are the factors of the original trinomial. Multiplying them would result in the original trinomial. Now factor the last numerical term such that the sum or difference of those factors gives you the numerical coefficient of the middle term. Now split the middle term according to the factors obtained in the previous term...

How To: Solve a quadratic equation

In this video the instructor shows how to solve a quadratic equation. If you have a quadratic equation with complex fractional terms and you find that a particular term is repeating then equate that term to a new variable and replace the variable in the given equation. Now try to get the equation a*x*x + b*x + c = 0, and solve for the roots of the equation which gives the values of the intermediate variable. But this variable was replaced instead of another term. So equate that term to the va...

How To: Factor a trinomial, find the GCF, then group

This lesson describes the method to find the factors of a trinomial, which consists of three terms, by grouping. First of all, factor out the greatest common factor (GCF), and write the reduced trinomial in parentheses. Let the terms of the trinomial be written in order of exponent of the variable. For example, 3(3X2+2X-8) trinomial is written in the order of variable, with 3(GCF) factored out. Now identify the coefficient of the first and last terms, for example in this case, it is 3 and 8. ...

How To: Write a logarithm as a sum or difference of logarithms

This video shows the method to write a logarithm as a sum or difference of logarithms. The square root of the term given is taken out as half according to the rule. Then the numerator and denominator is divided into product of factors. This is broken into the difference of numerator and denominator according to the rule. Finally, the product of factors is expressed as the sum of factors. Now we see the domain of the term. As the term is a square root of the term it should be greater than zero...

How To: Multiply rational expressions

The video describes the basic process of multiplying two rational expressions. The problem illustrated in this video involved multiplying rational expressions of monomial terms with integer coefficients. As with the other example problems, we follow the steps of: factoring, canceling, and multiplying. Because these terms are monomials, no factoring is required (but we still state it as a step for similarity to solving other problems). We then find the greatest common divisor for both terms to...

How To: Factor a trinomial by GCF then grouping

In this tutorial the instructor shows how to factor a trinomial with Greatest Common Factor (GCF) and then how to group it. The first thing you have to do when you want to factor a trinomial is look for the GCF. First factor the numerical coefficients of the terms of the equation. Now separate out the common numerical factor and if any common variable. This leaves you with a binomial to be factored. Now to solve this multiply the numerical coefficients of the first term and the last term and ...
