Common Factoring: Find out the GREATEST COMMON FACTOR of each term and factor it out. Using Grouping:
Sometimes, a polynomial will have no common factor for all the terms. Instead, we can group together the terms which have a common factor. When you use the Grouping Method:
* When there is no factor common to all terms
* When there is an even number of terms.
Example:

The polynomial x3+3x2−6x−18 has no single factor that is common to every term. However, we notice that if we group together the first two terms and the second two terms, we see that each resulting binomial has a particular factor common to both terms.

Factor x2 out of the first two terms, and factor −6 out of the second two terms. x2(x+3) −6(x+3)
Now look closely at this binomial. Each of the two terms contains the factor (x+3). Factor out (x+3).
(x+3) (x2−6) is the final factorization.
x3+3x2−6x−18= (x+3) (x2−6)

Factoring Trinomials:

Notice that the first term in the resulting trinomial comes from the product of the first terms in the binomials: x⋅x=x2. The last term in the trinomial comes from the product of the last terms in the binomials: 4⋅7=28. The middle term comes from the addition of the outer and inner products: 7x+4x=11x. Also, notice that the coefficient of the middle term is exactly the sum of the last terms in the binomials: 4+7=11.

Method of Factoring
1. Write two sets of parentheses:( ) ( ).
2. Place a binomial into each set of parentheses. The first term of each binomial is a factor of the first term of the trinomial. 3. Determine the second terms of the binomials by determining the factors of the third term that when added together yield the coefficient of the middle term.

...block to overcome its state of inertia. A body travelling on an inclined plane due to its weight has an angle of repose, wherein it has a uniform sliding motion. There is no acceleration taking place when the block slides uniformly. No matter what vertical height or horizontal distance is used, the angle of repose will remain the same. The tangent of the angle of repose is always equal to the coefficient of friction of the block.
Coefficient of friction denoted by μ is determined the formula μ=FN f=Friction force, N=normal force. The value of μ has no units since it only serves as a factor between F and N. In order to obtain a constant value for the μ, one has to consider state of equilibrium for the object being experimented. We also took note of the fact that 0 < u < 1.
In cases which there is an angle of repose, all forces involved are being translated with accordance to the surface’s inclination. The weight will now have components that contribute to the sliding of the object. If we have the angle of repose as θ, the components of W contributed to the object in sliding motion are Wsinθ, parallel to the surface and Wcosθ, perpendicular to the surface. Since the system is in equilibrium, Wsinθ is also equaled by the frictional force, while Wcosθ is also equaled by the normal force. In determining μ, it would be μ=FN=WsinθWcosθ=tanθ. Since the θ for the value of μ is also the θ of inclination, therefore in correlation, we can relate μ as equal to the...

The case between Beauty and Stylish involves concept of a valid contract, pre-contractual statements, express term and misrepresentation.
A valid contract is established between Beauty and Stylish when an offer is accepted and there is intention for both parties to create legal relations. An offer refers to the expression of willingness of the offerer to be contractually bound by an agreement if his or her offer is properly accepted. It has to be clear and certain in terms. It must also be communicated to the offeree before it is being accepted. In addition, the acceptance has to be unqualified, unconditional and made by a positive act. In the case of Beauty and Stylish, a positive act refers to the signing of the contract. All terms of the offer must be accepted without any changes and cannot be subjected to any condition, taking effect only upon fulfillment of that condition. When Beauty and Stylish enter into the agreement, they must intend to bind and bound legally to each other by their agreement. This is the intention to create legal relations between two parties. In the meanwhile, this contract must possess consideration. A contract must therefore be a two-sided affair, with each side providing or promising to provide something of value in exchange for what the other is to provide.
Every contract, whether oral or written, contain terms. The terms of a contract set out the rights and duties of the parties. Terms are the promises and undertakings given by each...

When terms of a polynomial have the same variables raised to the same powers, the terms are called similar, or like terms. Like terms can be combined to make the polynomial easier to deal with. Example:
1. Problem: Combine like terms in the following
equation: 3x2 - 4y + 2x2.
Solution: Rearrange the terms so it is easier
to deal with.
3x2 + 2x2 - 4y
Combine the like terms.
Probably the most important kind of polynomial multiplication that you can learn is the multiplication of binomials (polynomials with two terms). An easy way to remember how to multiply binomials is the FOIL method, which stands for first, outside, inside, last. Example:
1. Problem: Multiply (3xy + 2x)(x^2 + 2xy^2).
Simplify the answer.
Solution: Multiply the first terms of each bi-
nomial. (F)
3xy * x2 = 3x3y
Multiply the outside terms of each binomial....

Class X Mathematics Chapter 2: Polynomials Chapter Notes Top Definitions 1. A polynomial p(x) in one variable x is an algebraic expression in x of the form p(x) = anxn an1xn1 an 2 xn 2 ........ a2 x2 a1x a0 , where (i) a0 , a1, a2......an are constants (ii)x is a variable (iii) a0 , a1, a2......an are respectively the coefficients of xi. (iv) Each of anxn an1xn1, an 2 xn 2 ,........a2 x 2 , a1x, a0 , with an 0, is called a term of a polynomial. 2. 3. 4. The highest exponent of the variable in a polynomial is called the degree of the polynomial. A polynomial of degree one is called a linear polynomial. It is of the form ax + b. Examples: x-2, 4y+89, 3x-z. A polynomial of degree two is called a quadratic polynomial. It is of the form ax2 + bx + c. where a, b, c are real numbers and a 0 Examples: x2-2x+5, x2-3x etc. A polynomial of degree 3 is called a cubic polynomial and has the general form ax3 + bx2 + c x +d. For example: x3 2 x 2 2 x 5 etc. A real number k is said to be the zero of the polynomial p(x) if p (k) = 0.

...squares binomials as separate factors?
distribution
in what conditions can a factored expression be factored further?
Greatest Common Factor
A greatest common factor of two or more terms is the largest factor that all terms have in common. The greatest common factor of a polynomial should be factored out first before any further factoring is completed.
Example:
3r6+27r4+15r2=3r2(r4+9r2+5)
When multiplying variables, add the exponents.
r^2•r^4=rr•rrrr=r6
Whenfactoring a GCF, subtract the exponents.
To factor r^2 from r^6: r^6−2=r^4
rrrrrr=(rr)(rrrr)=r2(r4)
Difference of Squares Binomials
A difference of squares binomial includes a perfect square term subtracted by another perfect square term.
Pattern:
a^2−b^2=(a+b)(a−b)
Example:
r^2−4=(r+2)(r−2)
Perfect Square Trinomials
A perfect square trinomial is a polynomial of three terms where the first and last terms are perfect squares and the middle term is twice the product of the square roots of those terms.
Pattern:
a^2+2ab+b^2=(a+b)^2 OR a^2−2ab+b^2=(a−b)^2
Example:
r^2+12r+36=(r+6)^2 r^2−12r+36=(r−6)^2
Check your factors to see if they can be factored further
Sometimes after an initial factoring, the remaining terms can be factored further.
Example:
t^8−81
This is a difference of squares.
(t^4+9)(t^4−9)
The factor(t^4−9) is also a difference of squares.
(t^4+9)(t2+3)(t^2−3)
Even though there are even powers here, these are not special products so this is factored completely....
