The story goes as follows. We start by always looking for a greatest common factor as he gets carried on to the final answer. (He doesn't deal with the shenanigans that are to follow). Then, the evil King Trin kidnaps the new A coefficient and hides him away in the C value. This has now disguised our trinomial as a trinomial where A is 1. This is then easy to factor by looking for a value that multiplies to be C but adds to be B. After this trinomial has been factored, we come to the rescue with the A being placed back next to his x. However, there is an impostor in our midst. To find the impostor, we take the GCF of each parentheses. The impostor is then revealed and he is banished from the kingdom. The leftover factors then rejoice and rejoin with their original GCF. They then live happily every after <3.
The kids had some fun with this story as I was told all day long that it was not nice to kidnap values and then make them go poof. When the impostors are banished, a few kids claim that they are stabbed but I just say they are forced to go away.
This can be a fun method and an easy one too especially if the original A value is not so nice :)
