Factoring a product of a quadratic trinomial and a monomial

A two step process is shown here. First, as always, look for a greatest common factor (GCF) and remove it from all terms. Then second, the resulting quadratic expresssion can then be factored into…

Multiplying conjugate binomials: Univariate

Demonstrates what happens when the F.O.I.L. method is applied to multiply two binomails of the form (a + b) (a - b). It's special circumstance that allows a short cut.
