## anonymous 5 years ago Factor x^3+2x^2-49x-98

Use grouping (place parentheses around x^3 and 2x^2 and around -49x-98, placing a + in the middle of the two parenthesis, and then factor out a GCF. If that doesn't work use the quadratic formula. $\left(-b \pm \sqrt{b ^{2}-4ac} \right)\div2a$ Where a,b,c are the constants in the ax^2+bx+c
