Today you are going to be asked to factor a trinomial. Do you have any thoughts
about how to do this?
____________________________________________________________
Example 1 – Factor the trinomials using _____________________________________.
On the homework the directions will say “ pression s.html">Factor each
expression .” But now that we are factoring three
different types of polynomials , we’ll need to figure out which type of factoring
to use on each type of
polynomial.
Type of Polynomial 
Monomial 
Binomial 
Trinomial 
Type of factoring 



Example 2 – Factor each expression. First identify the
type of polynomial.
