In this lesson, we learn how to factor 8-trinomials into two binomials using the trial factors method. The method involves trying out different factors and signs until the correct factorization is achieved. It's important to check each factorization to ensure its correctness. This method can be time-consuming, but there are other systematic shortcuts to explore in future lessons.
This is part 1 of factoring trinomials into 2 binomials when the coefficient of x-squared is not 1. This is an introduction to the trial factors method.
