First thiry seconds: Highlight at most three key terms in the prompt. Focus on the key terms as main topics. Next three minutes: List related stories within personal memory, either of your own or some else's stories that doesn't need to be well-known. Choose the best one for each key term. These are your three supporting paragraphs! If you only came up with two, please work with them for now and move on to the next step - you might think of one more example after you start writing. Final one minute and thirty seconds: Find one common characteristic in all three stories. Connect the dots into one sentence as your thesis statement and conclusion idea. Voilà! You have your main ideas for beginning and end.

Question:

What are tips to factor the quadratic polynomial 3x^2 - 12x + 12 in a clear set of steps?

Step 1: The trick is to start from x, the variable. First find the term with the highest power of x. The answer is 3x^2 in this case. Step 2: We want to make x^2 separate for the sake of factoring - let's make 3*(x^2) out this term. Step 3: Factor the same number "3" from the remaining terms, just as outside the brackets of 3(x^2). We'd get 3*(x^2) -3*(4x) +3*(4) which equals 3*(x^2 - 4x +4). Next step is when we focus on the terms within the brackets, (x^2 - 4x +4). Step 4: The new polynomial x^2 - 4x +4 can be seen as (x + number1)*(x + number 2). We can first list possible candidates for number1 and number 2 by factoring for the constant 4, which has four possibilities: 1*4, (-1)*(-4), 2*2, (-2)*(-2). Multiply each pair of candidates with x and add, we obtain 5x, -5x, 4x and -4x respectively. The last one matches with the middle term in our new polynomial, hence we have solved number1=number2= -2. Complete answer: 3x^2 - 12x + 12 = 3*(x - 2)*(x - 2)
