Factor simple and harder quadratics, including quadratics with common factors

S.O.S.! Ships navigating the treacherous Bermuda Rectangle are falling prey to bizarre disasters. Factor quadratic expressions to answer the ships’ distress calls and save their stricken crews!

Factorize quadratics and other expressions using the difference of two squares where the first term has a square coefficient other than 1. e.g. (ax)² - (by)² including removing a common factor from each term first.

Factorize quadratics of the form x² + bx + c including those that require manipulation to reduce to this form, including removing a common factor from each term first.

Factorize quadratics of the form ax² + bx + c including those that require manipulation to reduce to this form, including removing a common factor from each term first.

Factorize quadratics and other expressions using the difference of two squares where the coefficient of x² is 1, or where a common factor can be removed to make it 1. e.g. 3x² - 3a².

Solve by first factorising into 2 brackets including equations that require a common factor to be removed first, form x² + bx + c = 0 or px² + pbx + pc = 0.
