D = 11^2 - 4*2*5 = 121 - 40 = 81 x1 = [-11 - sqrt(81)]/(2*2) = [-11-9]/4 = -20/4 = -5 x2 = [-11 + sqrt(81)]/(2*2) = [-11+9]/4 = -2/4 = -1/2

so to factor: (x-x1)(x-x2) = (x+5)(x+1/2)

sorry I don't know how to factor but you can use quadratics and you know how in some cases you can't factor, quadratics will always get u the answer..
