In this lesson, we learn how to factorize non-basic trinomials into two binomials using factoring by grouping and the box method. The instructor provides examples where the first and last terms multiply out to be negative or positive, and walks through the process of finding two numbers with the sum equal to the middle term. They also demonstrate how to factor using the shortcut method. With various options available, the best way to learn is by practicing, practicing, practicing.
This is part 5 of factoring non-basic trinomials into 2 binomials. More examples using factoring by grouping, and the box method.
