( 7)( + 5) ( + 7)( + ) ( + 7)( + 5) ( )( + 7) B. Where did the first term ( a ) of the trinomial come from in each of the problems above? (Use the words like product, sum, First terms, Outer terms, Inner terms, and Last terms) C. Where did the last term (c) of the trinomial come from in each of the problems above? (Use the words like product, sum, First terms, Outer terms, Inner terms, and Last terms) D. Where did the middle term (b) of the trinomial come from in each of the problems above?

Factor the following trinomials (i.e., break them apart to be two binomials again) = ( )( ) =. 10 ( )( ) + =. 1 ( )( ) Remember what you just discovered and what we discussed on the previous page (i.e., start with the first two questions and then verify with the last question). + =. ( )( ) = ( )( ) B. Factoring can also be the reverse of distributing (i.e., what is in common with all the terms?) Try the following 15 y 10 y = ( ) Remember what you do when you distribute ( y + ),. + y + = ( ) now do the opposite. C. What happens when both are together (reverse distribution and reverse FOILing)? Which do you do first? Always do reverse distribution first, then the reverse FOILing. Try the following r + r 5 r = ( )= ( )( ). r + r + 1 r = ( )= ( )( ). r 1 r ( )= ( )( = ) Homework: p. P 1 all Honors Algebra Page

1.3 Algebraic Expressions

1.3 Algebraic Expressions A polynomial is an expression of the form: a n x n + a n 1 x n 1 +... + a 2 x 2 + a 1 x + a 0 The numbers a 1, a 2,..., a n are called coefficients. Each of the separate parts,

expression is written horizontally. The Last terms ((2)( 4)) because they are the last terms of the two polynomials. This is called the FOIL method.

A polynomial of degree n (in one variable, with real coefficients) is an expression of the form: a n x n + a n 1 x n 1 + a n 2 x n 2 + + a 2 x 2 + a 1 x + a 0 where a n, a n 1, a n 2, a 2, a 1, a 0 are
