Factoring Quadratics A != 1

In this video, we are going to learn how to factor quadratics that are in standard form, where a does not =1

  • We show the pattern and trick on how to factor quadratics where a does not equal 1
  • We practice examples of factoring standard to factored form by finding factors of the a times c term that add to the b term, then place the a term over each of the factors, reduce the fractions, to get the factor
  • We use the X technique to organize the factors
