Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There 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
