Factor Trinomials with Two Variables

How to factor Trinomials with two variables? Sometimes a trinomial may consists of two variables. We can factor the trinomial in a similar way as if it has only one variable. We can use the trial and error method (reverse FOIL method), the grouping method or the AC method.
