Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05x^(2)6x+1 For a polynomial of the form ax^(2)+bx+c, find two factors of a*c (5) that add up to b (6).In this problem (1)/(5)*1=(1)/(5) (which is (c)/(a)) and (1)/(5)1=(6)/(5) (which is ((b)/(a)) , so insert (1)/(5) as the right hand term of one factor and 1 as the righthand term of the other factor. (x(1)/(5))(x1) Remove the fraction by multiplying the first term of the factor by the denominator of the second term. (5x1)(x1)
