To check your work, distribute using the area model and you should get your original problem. Let me know if you need help!

- Factor each binomial using the GCF
- Once you have factored each binomial, find what they have in common (there should be something that they share) and factor it out
- This is going to be confusing until you watch the amazing video below!
