## How did you factor the Trinomials?

To factor a trinomial in the form x + bx + c, find two integers, r and s, whose product is c and whose sum is b. Rewrite the trinomial as x + rx + sx + c and then use grouping and the distributive property to factor the polynomial. The resulting factors will be (x + r) and (x + s).
