Lesson Summary:

In this lesson on Factoring by Grouping Part 2, the teacher explains the same procedure as Part 1. He uses four terms to show how to form two groups and use the greatest common factor to factor the polynomial. The teacher also factors polynomials with two variables and reminds the audience to always Cheek. The lesson ends with a preview of the next lesson where the teacher will teach how to factor trinomials.

    This video picks up where the last left off, factoring some more complicated polynomials by grouping. This time, some of the polynomials have x and y in them. Finding the greatest common factor and factoring the polynomials is a bit more difficult, but the process is explained step by step.
