Factoring Perfect Square Trinomials
Let's look at #'s 5 & 6 from the warm – up: 5. (x + 4)²
When multiplied, we find that (x + 4) (x + 4)
are factors of (x² + 8x + 16). This type of polynomial
is known as a Perfect Square Trinomial
1. PST's have a square in the first & third terms
2. The factors of PST's are always either the square
of a sum (x + y)², or the square of a difference (x + y)²
3. We arrive at the trinomial by performing a "
square, double, square" on the factor. To factor
then, we do the opposite, which is a sq. root, halve,
sq. root. to arrive at the factors.

FACTORING PERFECT SQUARE TRINOMIALS
x2 + 4x + 4
sq. root(x) + half (2) + sq. root(2)
(3x - 4)2
(x + 2)2
Is this a perfect square trinomial?
sq. root (3x) + half (12) + sq. root(4)
Always be aware of possible
perfect square trinomials
(9x2 -24x + 16
7.
1) Factor out the GCF first
2) Look for a difference of squares
3) Look for a perfect square trinomial
4) Look for a pair of binomial factors
5) If a polynomial has 4 or more terms, look for a way
to factor by grouping
6) Make sure you can’t factor any further
7) Check your work!
