Take out the biggest number that goes into all the terms 2) For each letter in turn, take out the highest power (e.g. x, x(squared) etc) that will go into every term 3) Open the brackets and fill in all the bits needed to reproduce each term. 4) check your answer by using F.O.I.L (first, outside, inside, last) Example of factorising: factorise 3x^2 + 6x. 1) the biggest number that divides into 3 and 6 is 3. 2) The highest power that will go into x^2 and x is x 3) 3x(x+2) 4) 3x * x= 3x^2 3x * 2= 6x Difference between two squares The rule for this is: a^2 - b^2 = (a+b) (a-b) Examples for difference between two squares Factorise: a) x^2 - 1 = (x + 1) (x -1) b) 9q^2 - 16q^2 = (3q + 4q) (3q - 4q) c) 3x^2 - 75y^2 = 3(x^2 - 25y^2) = 3(x + 5y) (x - 5y)
