Algebraic Procedures



Combining Like Terms: 3x2 – 2x + 5 – 3x + 4 – 2x2 = x2 – 5x + 9

Multiplying by a Constant: 2(3x – 2) = 6x – 4

Multiplying Polynomials: (x + 1)(3x – 2) = 3x2 – 2x + 3x – 2 = 3x2 + x - 2

Distributing the Negative: 3x – (2x – 4) = 3x – 2x + 4 = x + 4

Factoring out the GCF: 6x + 9 = 3(2x + 3)

Factoring Polynomials: x2 + 7x + 12 = (x + 4)(x + 3)
