Factoring with Variables - Chapter Summary
Reacquaint yourself with important factoring techniques through our online videos to prepare for Regents test day. The lessons in this chapter include the following important topics:
- Fraction notation with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
- Factoring out variables
- Combining variables and numbers in factoring
- Transforming factoring into division problems
- Factoring by grouping
Each lesson includes step-by-step instructions that are easy to follow and many clear examples to support understanding. The practice problems in each lesson will help you get ready to try the multiple-choice quiz at the end. After taking the quiz, you'll be able to measure your understanding and decide whether any additional review is necessary. If so, you can use the video tags to go back and find pertinent sections, or you can choose to watch the video another time in its entirety. Some students like to watch the video one time and then read the text version of the script a separate time. Select lessons also include links to additional text-only lessons that might provide extra support to the concepts.
Regents Examination in Algebra I (Common Core) Objectives
The Algebra I test assesses whether students have learned the necessary high school math content in four categories, including number and quantity, statistics and probability, algebra and functions. The test is composed of 24 multiple-choice and 13 constructed-response questions and spans three hours. Our online multiple-choice quizzes can give you excellent practice for this NY Regents test.
1. Using Fraction Notation: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication & Division
How do we add, subtract, multiply or divide with fractions? In this lesson, we'll learn how to use fraction notation correctly no matter what operation we're completing.
2. Factoring Out Variables: Instructions & Examples
Let's find the factors. In this lesson, we'll learn how to factor out numbers or variables from an expression. We'll even learn how to factor variables with exponents.
3. Combining Numbers and Variables When Factoring
With an expression, you know how to factor out a number, and you know how to factor out a variable. In this lesson, we'll learn how to factor out combined numbers and variables.
4. Transforming Factoring Into A Division Problem
Watch this video lesson to learn how you can factor a problem by turning it into a division problem. Learn how this actually helps you to factor and keep your numbers straight.
5. Factoring By Grouping: Steps, Verification & Examples
How do you factor an expression if all the terms don't share a common factor? Grouping! In this lesson, we'll learn how to use grouping to help factor expressions.
