Factoring trinomials with a coefficient of 1

  • This video is the first step to learning how to factor trinomials. 
  • We start off with a relatively easy one, which has a  coefficient of 1.

                  x2 − 5x + 6

  • NOTE:  The coefficient of a term is the number in front of the variable.  If there is no number, it's assumed to be 1.
