# Interactive video lesson plan for: Solving Quadratic Equations with Factoring-Basic Examples

#### Activity overview:

Step 1: Set the equation equal to 0 in descending order.
Step 2: The lead coefficient must equal to one to factor this way
Step 3: Factor the trinomial so the value of c, the last term, is the product of two numbers that add to the middle term, b. Write the factors in the form:
(x +/- factor)(x+/-factor)
Step 4. Set each binomial equal to 0.
Step 5: Solve each one step equation for the solution.

How do you factor a trinomial?
What are the steps involved in factoring?
What do do once you have the equation factored?
What do you do if the equation is not equal to zero?

Video Guide
0:17 Solve m^2 -5m -14 =0 This involves factoring a trinomial with a lead coefficient of 1
1:48 Solve x^2 -x =12 In order to solve this equation you need to get the 12 all together and the equation equal to 0 then factor
3:07 Solve 3x^2 + 24x +45 =0
