Unit 6-Objective 3- Factoring by Grouping

can be factorized if you group the 1

The 1

You can now group the terms like this:

and you can factor out (2p+q)

Another example

If you group the 1

terms together you can factorize:

(Notice that (2-y) and (y-2) are not the same so

you need to factor out )

(You can use distributive property to check your answers)

You can rewrite the problem

You can now factor out the quantity (2-y)

Now you can factor out ‘y’ also.
