- 3. What are Perfect Square Trinomials?• Let’s begin by simplifying a few binomials.• Simplify each.1.(x + 4)22.(x – 7)23.(2x + 1)24.(3x – 4)2
- 4. 1. (x + 4)2 = x2 + 4x + 4x + 16 x2 + 8x + 162. (x – 7)2 = x2 – 7x – 7x + 49 x2 – 14x + 493. (2x + 1)2 = 4x2 + 2x + 2x + 1 4x2 + 4x + 1
- 5. a2 ± 2ab + b2• Perfect Square Trinomials are trinomials of the form a2 ± 2ab + b2, which can be expressed as squares of binomials.• When Perfect Square Trinomials are factored, the factored form is (a ± b)2
- 6. Knowing the previous information will help us when Completing the SquareIt is very important to understand how to Complete the Square as you will be using this method in other modules!

- 8. Completing the SquareCompleting the Square in another way to Factor a Quadratic Equation.
- 9. Completing the SquareCompleting the Square in another way to Factor a Quadratic Equation. “Take Half and Square” are words you hear when referencing “Completing the Square”
- 10. Completing the SquareCompleting the Square in another way to Factor a Quadratic Equation. “Take Half and Square” are words you hear when referencing “Completing the Square” EOC Note:When a problem says “to solve”, “ﬁnd the x-intercepts” or the equation is set = 0, then you will Factor using any Factoring method that you have learned.
- 11. Example 1: Factor x2 + 6x + 9 = 0 using Completing the Square.
- 12. Example 1: Factor x2 + 6x + 9 = 0 using Completing the Square. You can probably look at this problem and know what the answer will be, BUT let’s Factor using Completing the Square!
- 13. Example 1: Factor x2 + 6x + 9 = 0 using Completing the Square. You can probably look at this problem and know what the answer will be, BUT let’s Factor using Completing the Square! Step 1: Move the +9 to the other side by subtracting (leave spaces as shown) x2 + 6x + _____ = -9 + ______
- 14. Example 1: Factor x2 + 6x + 9 = 0 using Completing the Square. You can probably look at this problem and know what the answer will be, BUT let’s Factor using Completing the Square!
