Factoring ax 2 + bx + c where a ≠ 1

So far, we have restricted our trinomial factoring to trinomials like :

x2 -x-6
where the leading coefficient = 1

Factoring ax2 + bx + c where a ≠ 1

Let's multiply two binomials to get a trinomial whose leading
coefficient is not equal to 1:

Note: when the leading coefficient ≠ 1,
the middle coefficient is not the sum
of the last two terms !

Factoring ax2 + bx + c where a ≠ 1

Example 1: Factor -7x -15+ 2 x2

Factoring ax2 + bx + c where a ≠ 1


Example 2: Factor 3x2- x-2

Factoring ax2 + bx + c where a ≠ 1

Example 3: Factor 5x2 -13x- 6

Factoring ax2 + bx + c where a ≠ 1

Practice: In your notes, factor the following trinomials
