Expanding two binomials using algebra tiles:

To expand the binomials I used distributive property:

Factoring a trinomial:

When factoring a trinomial we need to remember that 2 x’s make $x^2$, Positive 1 or negative 1  times a x will give you x, When we factor a trinomial we have to work backwards, so we solve $x^2$ by factoring out 2 x’s and we solve x’s by factoring out 1 x and one 1.
