  • 3. Factoring Trinomials I Trinomials (three-term) are polynomials of the form ax2 + bx + c where a, b, and c are numbers. The product of two binomials is a trinomials: (#x + #)(#x + #)  ax2 + bx + c
  • 4. Factoring Trinomials I Trinomials (three-term) are polynomials of the form ax2 + bx + c where a, b, and c are numbers. The product of two binomials is a trinomials: (#x + #)(#x + #)  ax2 + bx + c Hence, to factor a trinomial, we write the trinomial as a product of two binomials, if possible,

  • 51. Factoring Trinomials I Example B. a. Factor x2 + 4x – 12 We need u and v having opposite signs such that uv = –12, u + v = +4. Since -12 = (-1)(12) = (-2)(6) = (-3)(4)… They must be –2 and 6 hence x2 + 4x – 12 = (x – 2)(x + 6). b. Factor x2 – 8x – 12 We need u and v such that uv = –12, u + v = –8 with u and v having opposite signs. This is impossible.
