Overview Trinomials are a special type of polynomials that have three terms, usually a squared term, a coefficient times the term that is to the first power, and a constant. In this review, the squared term has a numerical coefficient of 1. Trinomials when the Squared Term Has a Coefficient of 1 The type of […]
Overview Factoring by grouping is the best method to use when some terms in a polynomial share one common factor and some other terms in the same polynomial share another common factor. The common factors can then be factored out using the distributive property. Determine the Common Factors The first step is to determine if […]
Overview Factoring a monomial from a polynomial is a process of finding the greatest common factor for the constants, the greatest common factor for the variable terms, and then using the distributive property to factor out the greatest common factor (GCF). Identifying Factors In symbol form, if a ∙ b = c, then both a […]
Overview Solving application problems is a process that includes understanding the problem, translating it into an equation, solving the equation, checking the answer, and answering the question. This process can be used to solve many different types of problems. Understanding and Setting up The Application Problem The first part of the process involves understanding what […]
Overview The first step in solving real-world problems mathematically is to change the problem into an equation. Sometimes, it is a matter of deciding what operations need to be used. It is also a matter of seeing how quantities relate to one another. Operations Words and phrases that represent addition include such things as added […]
