Bring 3x to the other side, factor, then set
each factor = 0 to solve for x.
: {0, 3}
PROBLEM #11
Factor.
x - 8x +15
2
Leading coefficient is 1 (a=1) so break
down the constant.
( − 3)( − 5)
PROBLEM #12
Factor.
x - 5x - 6

down the constant.
( + 1)( − 6)
PROBLEM #13
Solve.
x - 5x - 50 = 0
2
Leading coefficient is 1 (a=1) so break

: {−8, −4}
PROBLEM #15
Factor the trinomial, if possible. If the trinomial cannot
be factored, write prime.
12x + 22x -14
2
Factor out GCF.
Leading coefficient is not 1 (a>1) so make a
MAMA chart.

PROBLEM #16
Factor the trinomial, if possible. If the trinomial cannot
be factored, write prime.
2a +13a - 24
