Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02.1 Factoring 3x2+11x+6 The first term is, 3x2 its coefficient is 3 . The middle term is, +11x its coefficient is 11 . The last term, "the constant", is +6 Step1 : Multiply the coefficient of the first term by the constant 3 • 6 = 18 Step2 : Find two factors of 18 whose sum equals the coefficient of the middle term, which is 11 . 18 + 1 = 19 9 + 2 = 11 6 + 3 = 9 3 + 6 = 9 2 + 9 = 11 1 + 18 = 19 1 + 18 = 19 2 + 9 = 11 That's it Step3 : Rewrite the polynomial splitting the middle term using the two factors found in step 2 above, 2 and 9 3x2 + 2x + 9x + 6 Step4 : Add up the first 2 terms, pulling out like factors : x • (3x+2) Add up the last 2 terms, pulling out common factors : 3 • (3x+2) Step5 : Add up the four terms of step 4 : (x+3) • (3x+2) Which is the desired factorization Final result : (3x + 2) • (x + 3)
