# Algebra - Factoring - 250 words needed

**Question description**

Since this course is the second half of the Algebra material covered in MAT221, a brief review of its last topic is also included in the introductory post. Factoring is the key to everything we do in Week One of MAT222, so it is important that your factoring skills are sharp and ready to go!

Please see attachment for the two problems which are circled in red.

Factor the polynomials using whatever strategy seems appropriate. Referring back to the processes covered in Chapter Five of *Elementary and Intermediate Algebra*, state which factoring methods you will use and then demonstrate the methods on your problems, explaining the process as you go. Discuss any challenges those particular polynomials posed for the factoring.
