anonymous 5 years ago how would you decompose the x-term to FACTOR each polynomial??!?!?!?

1. anonymous

$6x ^{2} + x- 1$ how would you decompose the x term in this polynomial?

2. anonymous

you can use quadratic formula $x = (-b \pm \sqrt{b ^{2} - 4ac}) / 2a$

3. anonymous

where your polynomial is in the form $ax ^{2} +bx + c$

4. anonymous

or you can factor

5. anonymous

can you show how to decompose it?

6. anonymous

its by FOIL method (2x +1) ( 3x-1)

you look for two numbers that are factors of 6 that when multiplied to factors of one you get negative one but when added you get positive one
