I had a question about factoring. I know there are many methods and ways to factor, but what I wanted to know is why is grouping the de facto preferred way? For example, many educators say that they primarily teach factoring through grouping. Why don't they use other methods, such as X and Box? Is it because more people can understand as it is simpler?


Thank you,

There is no "best" method for factoring only what is preferred...or easiest to use. You decide which method works best for you! The one (or more) which gets you the correct answer!
