## Chapter 5 - Factoring

 Sec5.1 Section5.1-Factoring Polynomials 1.  Be able to determine the common monomial factor in a polynomial, if one exists. Sec5.2 Section5.2-Difference of Squares and Perfect Square Trinomials 2.  Given the difference of two squares, write the factored form. 3.  Given a perfect square trinomial, state the factors. Sec5.3 Section5.3-Factoring Trinomials of the Type 4.  Factor a trinomial of the type x squared + bx + c, if it is factorable. Sec5.4 Section5.4-Factoring Trinomials of the Type 5.  Factor a trinomial of the type ax squared + bx + c, if it is factorable. Sec5.5 Section5.5-A Strategy for Factoring Completely 6.  Factor a polynomial by grouping terms. 7.  Use a strategy for factoring a trinomial. Sec5.6 Section5.6-Solving Equations by Factoring 8.  Solve equations by applying the principle:  If the product of two or more factors is equal to 0, then at least one of the factors is zero. Sec5.7 Section5.7-Applications 9.  Solve word problems that utilize factoring the difference of squares or factoring a trinomial to find the solution. Sec5.8 Section5.8-Factoring the Sum and Difference of Two Cubes 10.  Factor the difference of two cubes. 11.  Factor the sum of two cubes.
