(x² + 8x + 16) The polynomial in # 2 is called a ______ polynomial The polynomial in # 5 is called a ______ polynomial 6. (3a – 2b)² The polynomial in # 6 is called a ______ polynomial 6. (9a² – 12ab - 4b²) Class Notes Section of your Notebook: 8. x² - 9x + 12 Prime
  5. 5. 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.
  6. 6. 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. 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!
