#### Factoring an equation

## How do you factor algebraic equations?

So, if, in your equation, your b value is twice the square root of your c value, your equation can be factored to (x + (sqrt(c)))^{2}. For example, the equation x^{2} + 6x + 9 fits this form. 3^{2} is 9 and 3 × 2 is 6. So, we know that the factored form of this equation is (x + 3)(x + 3), or (x + 3)^{2}.

## What are the 4 methods of factoring?

The following factoring methods will be used in this lesson:Factoring out the GCF.The sum-product pattern.The grouping method.The perfect square trinomial pattern.The difference of squares pattern.

## What are the 6 types of factoring?

## What are the 4 ways to solve quadratic equations?

The four methods of solving a quadratic equation are factoring, using the square roots, completing the square and the quadratic formula.

## What are factoring methods?

Factoring is the process by which we go about determining what we multiplied to get the given quantity. A common method of factoring numbers is to completely factor the number into positive prime factors. A prime number is a number whose only positive factors are 1 and itself.

## Where is factoring used in real life?

Factoring is a useful skill in real life. Common applications include: dividing something into equal pieces, exchanging money, comparing prices, understanding time and making calculations during travel.

## What is factorisation method?

Factorisation is the process of reducing the bracket of a quadractic equation, instead of expanding the bracket and converting the equation to a product of factors which cannot be reduced further. For example, factorising (x²+5x+6) to (x+2) (x+3). These factors can be either variable, integers or algebraic expressions.

## What is the first rule of factoring?

RULE # 1: The First Rule of Factoring: Always see if you can factor something out of ALL the terms. This often occurs along with another type of factoring.

## Why do we use factoring in math?

Factoring is an important process that helps us understand more about our equations. Through factoring, we rewrite our polynomials in a simpler form, and when we apply the principles of factoring to equations, we yield a lot of useful information.
