How To: Factor trinomials with 2 variables & GCF by grouping

In the video, the process of factoring trinomials is described. A trinomial that cannot be easily factored in its original form is shown. It is simplified by pulling out the greatest common factor. After that, a trinomial that is easier to factor is shown. Next, the simplified trinomial is broken up into four terms so that factoring by grouping can be done. Once again, a common factor from each pair is taken so that two binomials are created. Once the greatest common factor is added back with...

How To: Find the greatest common factor, GCF

In this tutorial the instructor shows how to calculate the greatest common factor, or GCF. While computing greatest common factor, you are pulling out the smallest exponents of any common factors along with the factor. Finding the greatest common factor is similar to finding the least common multiple. When given any numbers to find the greatest common factor, the first step in the general procedure to be followed is to break each number down into its factors. You need to break down the number...

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 ...

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: Find the greatest common factor (GCF)

This video tutorial shows you the proper way to find the GCF, or greatest common factor. While this is not necessary, the video shows a method of drawing a T chart. List both the numbers that you need to find the GCF, then list there factors, including the number 1. Once you display your factors of both numbers it is a clear cut visual of what the GCF is. In the case of the problem on the video the number 4 has factors of: 1, 2, 4 and the number 20 has factors of: 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, and 20. Ther...

How To: Solve quadratic equations by factoring in math

In this video the instructor shows how to solve quadratic equations by factoring. You can solve a quadratic equation by factoring them. To do this first write the equation in the standard from which is a*x*x + b*x + c = 0. Now factor the equation into two smaller equations of single degree. Now you can apply the zero-factor property to solve the equation in this from. The zero-factor property states that for a real values a and b, if a multiplied by b is equal to zero then value of a must be ...

How To: List the factors of a number

In this tutorial the author shows how to factor a number. He says that factoring means to find all the smaller numbers which can be multiplied to obtain the original number. He says that the number one and the number it self are the factors of every number. Now to find the factor of a number he starts with 2 and tries to divide that number with 2. If he is able to divide it, it implies that 2 is a factor of that number. He now does this with each and every number between 1 and the number it s...

You will get (x-18over2)(x+5over2). The final answer is (x-9)(2x+5). Now we have found out the factor trinomials of 2xsquare-13x-45. This swing meth...

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 polynomial has a GCF. Look out for the common variables in all the three terms and pull them out which is the GCF of the polynomial. This simplifies the original equation to a polynomial which is of lower degree. Now facto...

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 out the two numbers you place the two numbers (D and E for example) in the equation (1/a)(ax+D)(ax+E). It takes a bit of practice to be good at deciding what D and E are, but the best way is to make sure that D*E = a*c ...

How To: Make a factor tree for the numbers 12 and 5

Making a factor tree is useful for us to see the factors of those numbers. Here we will take 12 and make a factor tree of it. Now we have to see those numbers with whom multiplication 12 comes. We will not take 1 and 12 here that is a obvious answer. We will take 3 and 4 there multiplication is 12. It will make the first branch of the tree now for the next branch we will take 3. 3 is a prime number 4 is not a prime number but multiplying 3*2*2 gives 12.
