In Solving Quadratic Equations by Factoring, Dr. Eaton begins by reviewing factoring techniques which include greatest common factor, difference of two squares, perfect square trinomials, and general trinomials. After is the zero product rule and then four practice problems.
Use factoring techniques to factor a quadratic expression. For trinomials, use the guess and check technique. Factor a greatest common factor first. Look for a perfect square trinomial and the difference of two squares.
Use the zero product property to set each factor equal to 0 and find the solutions.
