3 EXPLAIN GREATEST COMMON FACTOR Summary Factoring Polynomials You already know how to factor numbers by writing them as the product of other numbers. Now you will learn how to factor polynomials by writing them as the product of other polynomials. Finding the GCF of a Collection of Monomials To find the GCF of a collection of monomials: 1. Factor each monomial into its prime factors. 2. List each common prime factor the smallest number of times it appears in any factorization. 3. Multiply all the prime factors in the list. For example, to find the GCF of the monomials 16x 2 y 2, 4x 3 y 2, and 12xy 4 : 1. Factor each monomial into its prime factors. 16x 2 y 2 = x x y y 4x 3 y 2 = 2 2 x x x y y 12xy 4 = x y y y y 2. List each common prime factor the smallest number of times it appears in 2. any factorization. 2, 2, x, y, y 3. Multiply all the prime factors in the list. GCF = 2 2 x y y = 4xy 2 Factoring a Polynomial By Finding The Greatest Common Factor One way to factor a polynomial is to find the greatest common factor of its monomial terms. Here are the steps: 1. Identify the monomial terms of the polynomial. 2. Factor each monomial term. Remember that a monomial is a polynomial with only one term. For example: 14x 5 y 3, 32, 6x, and 9xyz are monomials; but 12x 5 y + 1 and 14y + 3x are not monomials. Before deciding if a polynomial is a monomial, binomial, etc., be sure you first combine any like terms and apply the distributive property, if possible. The GCF of a collection of monomials is the GCF of the coefficients of all the monomials multiplied by the smallest power of each variable in all the monomials. The GCF of a collection of monomials evenly divides each monomial in the collection. 16x 2 y 2 4xy 2 4x 3 y 2 4xy 2 12xy 4 4xy 2 = 4x =x 2 = 3y 2 3. Find the GCF of the monomial terms. 4. Rewrite each term of the polynomial using the GCF. 5. Factor out the GCF. 6. Use the distributive property to check your factoring. LESSON 7.1 FACTORING POLYNOMIALS I EXPLAIN 295

4 For example, to factor the polynomial 6x 2 y 2 + 8y 2 : 1. Identify the terms of the polynomial. = 6x 2 y 2, 8y 2 2. Factor each monomial term. 6x 2 y 2 = 2 3 x x y y 8y 2 = y y 3. Find the GCF of the monomial terms. GCF = 2 y y = 2y 2 4. Rewrite each term of the 6x 2 y 2 = 2y 2 3x 2 polynomial using the GCF 8y 2 = 2y Factor out the GCF. 6x 2 y 2 + 8y 2 = (2y 2 )(3x 2 + 4) 6. Use the distributive property to check your factoring. Is 6x 2 y 2 + 8y 2 = (2y 2 )(3x 2 + 4)? Is 6x 2 y 2 + 8y 2 = (2y 2 )(3x 2 ) + (2y 2 )(4)? Is 6x 2 y 2 + 8y 2 = 6x 2 y 2 + 8y 2? Yes. Answers to Sample Problems Sample Problems 1. Find the GCF of 9x 3 y, 3xy 4, and 6y 2. a. 3 x y y y y 2 3 y y b. 3, y c. 3y a. Factor each monomial 9x 3 y = 3 3 x x x y into its prime factors. 3xy 4 = 6y 2 = b. List each common factor the smallest number of times it appears in any factorization. c. Multiply all the prime factors in the list. GCF = 2. Factor: 6x 4 y x 2 y x 5 y 2 b. 2 3 x x x x y y y y x x y y y 2 5 x x x x x y y c. 2x 2 y 2 d. (2x 2 y 2 ) (3x 2 y 2 ) (2x 2 y 2 )(15y) (2x 2 y 2 )(5x 3 ) e. (2x 2 y 2 )(3x 2 y y + 5x 3 ) f. (2x 2 y 2 )(3x 2 y y + 5x 3 ) = (2x 2 y 2 )(3x 2 y 2 ) + (2x 2 y 2 )(15y) + (2x 2 y 2 )(5x 3 ) =6x 4 y x 2 y x 5 y 2 a. Find the terms of the polynomial. 6x 4 y 4, 30x 2 y 3, and 10x 5 y 2 b. Factor each monomial. 6x 4 y 4 = 30x 2 y 3 = 10x 5 y 2 = c. Find the GCF of the monomial terms. GCF = d. Rewrite each term of the 6x 4 y 4 = polynomial using the GCF. 30x 2 y 3 = 10x 5 y 2 = e. Factor out the GCF. = ( )( ) f. Use the distributive property to check your factoring. 296 TOPIC 7 FACTORING

5 GROUPING Summary Factoring a Polynomial by Finding the Binomial GCF You have already learned how to factor a polynomial when the GCF of the terms of the polynomial is a monomial. You can use the same steps to factor a polynomial when the GCF of the terms is a binomial. There are six steps in this procedure: 1. Identify the terms of the polynomial. 2. Factor each term. 3. Find the GCF of the terms. 4. Rewrite each term of the polynomial using the GCF. 5. Factor out the GCF. 6. Check your answer. For example, to factor the polynomial 5(3x + 2) + x 2 (3x + 2): 1. Identify the terms of the polynomial. 5(3x + 2) and x 2 (3x + 2) 2. Factor each term. (Here each 5(3x + 2) = 5 (3x + 2) term is already factored.) x 2 (3x + 2) = x 2 (3x + 2) 3. Find the GCF of the terms. GCF = 3x Rewrite each term of the 5(3x + 2) = 5 (3x + 2) polynomial using the GCF. x 2 (3x + 2) = x 2 (3x + 2) 5. Factor out the GCF. 5(3x + 2) + x 2 (3x + 2) = 5 (3x + 2) + x 2 (3x + 2) = (3x + 2)(5 + x 2 ) 6. Check your answer. Is (3x + 2)(5 + x 2 ) = 5(3x + 2) + x 2 (3x + 2)? Is (3x + 2)(5) + (3x + 2)(x 2 ) = 5(3x + 2) + x 2 (3x + 2)? Yes. Factoring By Grouping Sometimes the GCF of the terms of a polynomial is 1. For example find the GCF of the terms of 3x bx 2 + 3b : 3x 2 = 1 3 x x 9 = bx 2 = 1 b x x 3b = 1 3 b LESSON 7.1 FACTORING POLYNOMIALS I EXPLAIN 297

6 You see that the GCF of the 4 terms 3x 2, 9, bx 2, and 3b is 1. If you try to use the GCF to factor 3x bx 2 + 3b you get the following factorization: 3x bx 2 + 3b = 1 (3x bx 2 + 3b) This isn t very interesting! To factor the polynomial 3x bx 2 + 3b you need a technique other than finding the GCF of the terms. One such technique is called factoring by grouping. This procedure has 5 steps: 1. Factor each term. 2. Group terms with common factors. 3. Factor out the GCF in each grouping. 4. Factor out the binomial GCF of the polynomial. 5. Check your answer. For example, use this technique to factor the polynomial 3x bx 2 + 3b: 1. Factor each term. 3x 2 = 3 x x 9 = 3 3 bx 2 = b x x 3b = 3 b This isn t the only way to group the terms. For example, you could also have grouped the terms like this: (3x 2 + bx 2 ) + (9 + 3b) Try it; you ll get the same answer. Notice that in steps (1) (3) you have written the polynomial so that we can see its binomial GCF. In step (4) we are really doing all of steps (1) (5) from before. 2. Group terms with = 3x bx 2 + 3b common factors. = (3 x x + 3 3) + (b x x + 3 b) 3. Factor out the GCF = 3(x x + 3) + b (x x + 3) in each grouping. 4. Factor out the binomial = 3(x 2 + 3) + b(x 2 + 3) GCF of the polynomial. = (3 + b)(x 2 + 3) 5. Check your answer. Is (3 + b )(x 2 + 3) = 3x bx 2 + 3b? Is 3(x 2 + 3) + b (x 2 + 3) = 3x bx 2 + 3b? Is 3x bx 2 + 3b = 3x bx 2 + 3b? Yes. 298 TOPIC 7 FACTORING
