There are several reasons why you would factor an quadratic equation, however, the first that comes to my mind is solving for roots or for the xvalue(s). Ex) x^22x=1 x^22x+1=0 If we factor: (x1)(x1)=0 From this we can see that x=1, so that's our xvalue for this equation. You can double check that by plugging back in: 12+1=0 ... Check
