# Common Factor This is the first case and is used to factor an expression in which all have som ething

in common terms (may be a number, letter or combination of both). Example : Common Factor by grouping terms Here we will use the previous case, adding that the factors that will unite good appearance, ie those who have a common factor. Example: Cases for trinomials Perfect square trinomial: This name is given to the trinomials that meet the fol lowing characteristics: • • The first and third term is accurate and square root are positive. The second te rm is equal to two vces the product of square roots and can be positive or negat ive. and factors as a sum or difeencia, depending on the second term, squared, i s factored as follows: Difference of squares: for this we must bear in mind that a binomial is a difference of squares as long as the terms that compose it have different signs and square root of both terms are accurate, is factored as follows: Sum or difference of equal powers: To resolve this case you must take into accou nt the knowledge acquired significant ratios, ie where n belongs az; if n is even and if n is odd factorizes as follows: if n belongs to z if n is even if n is odd Perfect square trinomial by addition or subtraction: In this case we try to transform an expression (binomial or trinomial), in anoth er well in which they can apply perfecto.Ejemplo square trinomial: solving it we have: We apply difference of squares: Square trinomial of the form This triad must meet the following characteristics: • • • • Should be organized accordingly (ie, should match the formula). The first term m ust be positive and have exact square root. The variable that is accompanying th e second term must be the square root of the term number one. There are two numb ers: ie Square trinomial of the form Must meet the following characteristics: • • • •

Should be organized accordingly (ie, should match the formula). The first term m ust be positive, have a coefficient different from 1 and the literal must have e xact square root. The variable that is accompanying the second term must be the square root of the term number one. Complying with all the above features are ne cessary to transform the trinomial factor as one of the form as follows: then proceeds to multiply and divide by the variable that accompanies the first place (this in order not to disturb the exercise) as follows: and operated, resulting in: and so we have a triad of the earlier. Perfect Cube binomials Given the notable products tell us that: and so you must meet the following characteristics: • • • • You must have four terms. That both the first s that the second term is approximately three of the first term multiplied by the cube root erm is more than three times the cube root of and the last term are perfect cube times the square of the cube root of the last term. That the third t the latter.

Cube root of a monomial: this is obtained by taking the cube root of its coeffic ient and dividing the exponent of each letter by 3. Factoran an expression that is the hub of a team: Sum or difference of perfect cubes To this we must remember that: and We must bear in mind the following rules to develop: • • The perfect cubes of breaks down into two factors: 1. The sum of two cube roots. The square of the first root, the less the product of two roots, plus the squar e of the second root. The difference of two perfect cubes is divided into two fa ctors: 1. The difference in their cube roots. 2. The square of the first root, t he more the product of two roots, plus the square of the second root. Sum or difference of two equal powers We must take into account a small recap: • • • • is divisible by is divisible by is divisible by is never divisible by where n is an even or odd number n where n is odd pair being Example: divided by

and we have: and get the response: Cases for Polynomials Grouping of terms: Here we will try to group the various terms of an expression to factor viewed using the different methods. To use this method should take int o account that the expression must have a number of terms that must all be group ed with the same number of terms. Example: solving it we have:
