Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Trying to factor by splitting the middle term 2.1 Factoring 6x2+x35 The first term is, 6x2 its coefficient is 6 . The middle term is, +x its coefficient is 1 . The last term, "the constant", is 35 Step1 : Multiply the coefficient of the first term by the constant 6 • 35 = 210 Step2 : Find two factors of 210 whose sum equals the coefficient of the middle term, which is 1 . 210 + 1 = 209 105 + 2 = 103 70 + 3 = 67 42 + 5 = 37 35 + 6 = 29 30 + 7 = 23 21 + 10 = 11 15 + 14 = 1 14 + 15 = 1 That's it Step3 : Rewrite the polynomial splitting the middle term using the two factors found in step 2 above, 14 and 15 6x2  14x + 15x  35 Step4 : Add up the first 2 terms, pulling out like factors : 2x • (3x7) Add up the last 2 terms, pulling out common factors : 5 • (3x7) Step5 : Add up the four terms of step 4 : (2x+5) • (3x7) Which is the desired factorization Final result : (3x  7) • (2x + 5)
