Factoring Part 2
By bmktown, Updated
This storyboard does not have a description.
You have to get two numbers that multiply to 18 and subtract to give 3.
How do I factor x^2+3x-18?
I know that 6 times 3 is 18 and that 6 minus 3 is 3. What comes next?
You already know that x^2 is x times x. You fill in your parenthesis with a +6 and a -3.
So my answer would be (x+6)(x-3)?
Yes, and you can still check your answer using FOIL!
