Factoring Perfect Square Trinomials Example

Factor a 2 + 8 a + 16
Steps:Explanation:
a 2 + 8 a + 16 1 . The first and last terms are Perfect Squares.
To be a Perfect Square trinomial, the middle term must be
twice the product of the square roots of the first and last terms.
x 2 = x
16 = 4
2 ( x ) ( 4 ) = 8 x
2 . Factor by finding the square root of x2
and of 16.The binomial factor of the terms
x and 4.
( x + 4 ) 2 3 . Place the sign of the middle terms of
the trinomial between the terms of the factor.
So the factorization of a 2 + 8 a + 16 = ( x + 4 ) 2
