What is a polynomial?

A polynomial is a mononomial or a sum of mononomials, each called a term of the polynomial.

What are the three special factor forms?

GCF,difference of two squares, and perfect square trinomial.

Factor 2x^2-18x-72

2(x+3)(x-12)

Factor x^2-9

(x-3)(x+3)

Factor 3x^2-9x-12

3(x+1)(x-4)

Factor x^2-144

(x-12)(x+12)

Factor 10x^2-7x-12

(2x-3)(5x+4)

What is the first step when factoring a GCF special factor form?

You have to find the greatest common factor of all of the terms and divide it out.

Factor 5x^2+10x-15

5(x-1)(x+3)

Factor 4x^2-14x-8

2(2x+1)(x-4)

What will you get when you factor a "difference of two squares" polynomial?

You will get two pieces: (x-a number), and (x+a number)

Are you going to pass this test?

You bet your brown boots you're gonna.
