Guided Notes
Learning Objectives:

## I CAN, factor trinomials with a leading coefficient 1.

I CAN, factor trinomials with a common factor.
I CAN, factor trinomials with a leading coefficient other than 1.
I CAN, find the zeros of a function by factoring.

## Define the following, based on your prior knowledge:

Prime Number:

Composite Number:

Prime Factorization:

GCF:

## Example 1: Classify the number as prime or composite.

a.) 36

b.) 23

c.) 22

d.)31

a) 15 and 16

b) 36 2 and 54 2

c) 272 and 15 2

103 2 + 152 5 3

## Example 3: Factor GCF 12a2 + 16a

Recall:
Zero Product property: if ab=0 ab=0 , then either a=0 or b=0
a=0orb=0 (or both). A product of factors is zero if and only if one or
more of the factors is zero.

## Solve by factoring the GCF and applying Zero Product property:

Example 1: + =

Example 2: =

Example 3: (d - 5)(3d - 4) = 0

Factoring Trinomials + +

Recall:

(x +4)(x 3)

= 2 3 + 4 12
= 2 + 12

## Factor = Take apart!

a*c

Example 1
Factor the trinomial. Factors of a*c, that
