### 1.1. Common Factoring

1.1.1. Factoring Trinominals (3 Terms)

1.1.1.1. Complex trinomial (when coefficient a > 1)

1.1.1.1.1. ax^2+ bx+c

1.1.1.2. Simple trinominal (when coefficient a is = 1)

1.1.1.2.1. x^2+bx+c

1.1.1.3. Perfect square trinominals

1.1.1.3.1. a^2+2ab+b^2=(a+b)^2

1.1.1.3.2. a^2-2ab+b^2=(a-b)^ 2

1.1.2. Factoring Binominals (2 terms)

1.1.2.1. Differences of squares

1.1.2.1.1. a^2-b^2=(a+b)(a-b)

## 2. Expanding

### 2.1. Expanding Different Types

2.1.1. Product of sum and differences (No Middle term)(Similar to the differences of square in factoring)

2.1.1.1. (a+b)(a-b)=a^2-b^2

2.1.2. Perfect Square trinominals (Similar to factoring perfect square trinominals but expanding)

2.1.2.1. (a+b)^2= a^2+ 2ab+b^2

2.1.2.2. (a-b)^2= a^2-2ab+b^2

2.1.3. Expanding Binominals
