### Transcript

• 1. Simple Factoring Objective: Find the greatest common factor in and factor polynomials.
• 2. Greatest common factor (GCF)
• The largest of the common factors of two or more numbers.
• 3. Polynomial
• Many terms containing a combination of variables, constants, and positive exponents that are added.
• 4. Distributive property
• Multiplying a single term and a polynomial.
• 5. Distributive Property Examples and Practice To multiply common bases with exponents: Keep the base and add the exponents. x 2 (x 3 ) = x 5 y 4 (y 7 ) = y 11 z 23 (z 3 ) = z 26 Examples:   2(50 + 3) = 100 + 6 = 106   2(x + 3) = 2x + 6   y(x + 1) = yx + y   y(x + y 2 ) = yx + y 3   Practice:   3(10 + 6)     3(x + 6)   y(x + 6)   y(x + y 4 )
• 6. Find the Greatest Common Factor Find the greatest common factor: 10 + 5 2x – 4x 3y +6y 2 8d 3 + 4d 2 + 12d
• 7. Factoring: The distributive property in reverse:
• Identify the GCF
• Divide each term by the GCF
• Place the GCF in front of parentheses
• Place the remainder in the parentheses
• Check: Does using the distributive property result in the original expression?
• 3x + bx
• GCF = x
• 3x/x = 3
• bx/x = b
• 3-4) x ( 3 + b )
• 5) 3x + bx
• 8. Factoring Practice
• ax – cx
• 9x – 3y
• ax – bx
• 4x – 12y
• 25y – 35y 2
• 12y 2 – 36y 3 + 24y 4
