Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we continue factoring trinomials into two binomials when the coefficient of x-squared is not 1. Using the product and sum method, we learn a shortcut for finding one correct factor, and then factor out the greatest common factor to find the other factor. We see three examples of this method, including a non-factorable trinomial. The lesson emphasizes that there is not just one method for factoring, and that as long as you can get the correct factors, it's okay to use a method that works best for you.

Lesson Description:

This is part 3 of factoring trinomials into 2 binomials when the coefficient of x-squared is not 1. It is a continuation of part 2 showing three more examples of using the short-cut (sneaky) method of first finding one correct factor using the product and sum.
