There are four sets of factoring quadratics worksheets:

Examples, solutions, videos, and worksheets to help Grade 7 and Grade 8 students learn how to factor perfect square quadratics or perfect square trinomials, a² + 2ab + b².

### How to factor perfect square quadratics?

There are three sets of factoring perfect square quadratics worksheets.

• Factor Perfect Squares Quadratics (GCF).
• Factor Perfect Squares Quadratics (two variables)

A perfect square quadratic is a quadratic expression that can be factored into the square of a binomial. The general form of a perfect square quadratic is a² + 2ab + b², where a and b are any real numbers.

1. Identify the perfect squares in the expression.
2. Confirm that the middle term is twice the product of ab.
3. Write the factored form as (a + b)².

Example: Factor the expression x² + 6x + 9

1. Identify the perfect squares. In this case, the perfect squares are x² and 3².
2. Confirm that the middle term is twice the product of ab: 6x = 2(3x).
3. Write the factored form as (x + 3)².

However, not all quadratic expressions are perfect square quadratics. For example, the expression x² + 10x + 25 is not a perfect square quadratic because the middle term is not twice the product of ab.
