# POLQ 1 | Lesson 3 | Practice (Factoring Trinomials)

Factor the following trinomials using both methods from the last page,  grouping and traditional.  Which one is easier to use?

a) $$x^2+4x-32$$

b) $$12x^2+5x-2$$

c) $$6x^2-11x+4$$

The factors are scrambled below and include one extra factor:

$$(x-4)\hspace{7mm}(3x+2)\hspace{7mm}(2x-1)\hspace{7mm}(x+8)\hspace{7mm}(x-2)\hspace{7mm}(4x – 1)\hspace{7mm}(3x – 4)$$
