Review:

Factor the following expressions. Use more than one solution strategy to verify that you have factored correctly.

1. $$x^2+8x+12$$
2. $$2x^2+9x+10$$
3. $$x^4-4x^2-12$$

The answers below are out of order. Use them to check your work.

1. $$(2x+5)(x+2)$$
2. $$(x^2-6)(x^2+2)$$
3. $$(x+2)(x+6)$$
