In some special cases, it is possible to factor polynomials using the perfect square trinomial. This technique allows us to factor these types of polynomials easily and use factoring to find the roots or solutions to a problem. Here, we will do a brief review of the...

Trinomials are three-term polynomials. Generally, when we mention trinomials, we mean quadratic trinomials. Quadratic trinomials can be factored by finding numbers, which when multiplied or added match the original trinomial. Here, we will review the process used to...

Cubed binomials can be in the form of a sum of cubes or a difference of cubes. These binomials can be easily factored using general formulas. The process used to factor both binomials is similar with a simple change in the signs of the final expression. Here, we will...

A polynomial of the form a³-b³ is called a difference of cubes. These types of polynomials can be easily factored using a standard pattern. Here, we will learn the process used to factor a difference of cubes. We will look at several examples with answers to...

Factoring quadratic equations consists of rewriting the quadratic equation to form a product of its factors. Factoring can be considered as the reverse process of the multiplication distribution. Here, we will learn about two cases of factoring quadratic equations....
