    so to factor x^2-14x+33 we need to focus on the middle term 14 and the last term 33 so on the last term 33 we find all multiplication combinations that produce 33 1 x 33 = 33 11 x 3 = 33 then for the middle term 14 we look at the list of combinations (on the left side) use addition. so which 2 numbers produce 14 ?
