Factoring by Grouping

Factoring by Grouping


Step 1 :- Group terms. Collect the terms into groups so that each group

has a common factor.


Step 2:- Factor within the groups. Factor out the common factor in

each group.


Step 3:- Factor the entire polynomial. If each group now has a common

factor, factor it out. If not, try a different grouping.


Always check the factored form by multiplying.
