In this mini-lesson you'll learn how to factor the binomials and polynomials. It is an important step in solving problems in a good number of algebraic applications. In factoring polynomials, we determine all the terms that were multiplied together to get the given polynomial. We then try to factor each of the terms we found in the first step. This continues until we can’t factor anymore. For Example, here is the complete factorization of the polynomial
x4 – 16 = (x2 + 4)(x + 2)(x – 2)
This might seem complicated here as it is written in text, but it will be easy to follow once you hear the instructor explain it in the video here.
