This is the third page about factoring. It helps you FACTOR TRINOMIALS
In the first page, I presented the perfect square trinomial and the difference of two squares.
In the second page, I presented a method of factoring fourterm expressions with pairs of factors.
Pages 3a, 3b, and 3c give three methods of factoring trinomials:
Page 3a works by listing the factors of the "a" and "c" coefficients.
Page 3b completes the square.
Page 3c is the "AC Method", which has you multiply the "a" and "c" coefficients, and list all the factors of that product.
Page 3d is the "Simplified AC Method"
How to recognize a TRINOMIAL 


Continue by selecting one of these methods of factoring trinomials:
Page 3a works by listing the factors of the "a" and "c" coefficients.
Page 3b completes the square.
Page 3c has you multiply the "a" and "c" coefficients, and list all the factors of that product.
