13. Multiplying Binomials Review
Recall that multiplying 2 binomials
resulted in a trinomial.
14. Multiplying Binomials Review
Recall that multiplying 2 binomials
resulted in a trinomial.
Such as: ( 2x + 3) ( x + 5 ) = 2x 2
+ 13x + 15
15. Multiplying Binomials Review
Recall that multiplying 2 binomials
resulted in a trinomial.
Such as: ( 2x + 3) ( x + 5 ) = 2x 2
+ 13x + 15
Given the result, the 2 binomial factors
are not apparent but sometimes you want
to find the binomial factors.
16. Factoring Trinomials when a > 1
Watch a 4 minute video to learn the box
method for factoring trinomials.
This method can be applied to all
factorable trinomials (and some
binomials!).

In the previous example all terms were
positive but this isn’t always the case.
