Here are the basic steps you take to unFOIL a trinomial: 1. Determine all the ways you can multiply two numbers to get ac, the coefficient of the squared term. 2. Determine all the ways you can multiply two numbers to get bd, the constant term. 3. If the last term is positive, find the combination of factors from Steps 1 and 2 whose sum is that middle term; if the last term is negative, you want the combination of factors to be a difference. 4. Arrange your choices as binomials so that the factors line up correctly.

Linear Equations: Handling the First Degree Linear equations feature variables that reach only the first degree, meaning that the highest power of any variable you solve for is one. The general form of a linear equation with one variable is ax + b = c The one variable is the x. ) But, no matter how many variables you see, the 24 Part I: Homing in on Basic Solutions common theme to linear equations is that each variable has only one solution or value that works in the equation. The graph of the single solution, if you really want to graph it, is one point on the number line — the answer to the equation.

Your game plan is to multiply both sides of the equation by the least common denominator of all the fractions in the equation. To solve x + 2 + 4x + 2 = 9 - x , for example, you multiply each term in the 7 2 5 equation by 70 — the least common denominator (also known as the least common multiple) for fractions with the denominators 5, 7, and 2: J N 10 J N 35 J N 70 KK x + 2 OO + 70 KK 4x + 2 OO = 70 KK 9 - x OO 5 71 2 L 1 P L P L 1 P 14 Now you distribute the reduced numbers over each parenthesis, combine the like terms, and solve for x: 14 ^ x + 2h + 10 ^ 4x + 2h = 35 ^ 9 - x h 14x + 28 + 40x + 20 = 315 - 35x 54x + 48 = 315 - 35x 89x = 267 x=3 25 26 Part I: Homing in on Basic Solutions Extraneous (false) solutions can occur when you alter the original format of an equation.
