Factoring Using the Texas Method | Best Algebra Review

For the Texas Method, you’ll draw a capital T and X. Place the first term on top of the T. At the top of the X, multiply the first coefficient by the constant. In the bottom of the X, place the middle coefficient. On either side of the X, place the two numbers that have a product of the first coefficient and sum of the bottom coefficient. These two numbers also go on either side of the T, and need to be simplified. Once you’ve checked your factoring, use the zero product property to solve the equation.
