Factor by Grouping Check - Visualizing Algebra

  • 0:00 - 0:04
    We can perform this because we were dealing with factors here. We were
  • 0:04 - 0:08
    multiplying between these two numbers. So we removed a common factor of x plus
  • 0:08 - 0:12
    y. And notice we still have multiplication here. Again if I think about
  • 0:12 - 0:16
    distributing this a to x plus y, I would get this first term, and if I
  • 0:16 - 0:21
    distributed this positive 2 to this x plus y, I would get my second term. This
  • 0:21 - 0:25
    factoring is the opposite, or the inverse, of the distributive property. So you
  • 0:25 - 0:29
    try one out. What would be the factored form for this expression? Write your
  • 0:29 - 0:33
    answer here. Be sure you use parentheses, and there's no need to put a
  • 0:33 - 0:35
    multiplication sign in between them.
