POLQ 2 | Lesson 1 | Practice (Factoring Trinomials)

Factor all of the expressions from the activity on the last page.

Use the factoring patterns for the expressions that fall in these four categories:

Difference of  Two Squares          Perfect Square Trinomial

Difference of Cubes          Sum of Cubes


\(x^2 + 10x +25\)          \(x^3 +125\)          \(2x^3 + 128y^3\)          \((4x)^2 – 48x + 6^2\)

\(8x^3-27\)          \(a^3 -125b^3\)          \(m^3 +8\)

\(121 -y^2\)          \((x-2)^2 -49\)          \(r^2 -8r +16\)
