We will talk about how to approach different types of factoring problems in this free math video tutorial by Mario’s Math Tutoring such as:

0:17 Decision Tree for Factoring
2:04 Greatest Common Factor Method 5x^2 +10x +20
3:05 GCF 6x^3 – 2xy^2
4:41 Difference of 2 Squares x^2 – 100
6:00 GCF then Difference of 2 Squares 4y^2 – 100

10:07 Factoring by Grouping Followed by Difference of 2 Squares
x^3 – 2x^2 – 4x + 8
13:16 Factoring Trinomial with Leading Coefficient of 1 x^2 +7x + 12
14:19 Factoring Trinomial with Leading Coefficient of 1 x^2 – 5x – 24
15:48 Factoring Trinomial with Leading Coefficient not 1 by Splitting the Middle Term and Factoring by Grouping 6x^2 – 11x – 10
19:34 Factoring Trinomial 10x^2 – 3x – 4
