this is in the form ax^2 + bx + c to find factors set = 0 when (x-h) is a factor the remainder = 0 h is a number here are the steps to factor: identify your a, b, c find a*c list the factors of a*c including the signs find factors of a*c that will add up to b rewrite the function to "split" b into 2 components regroup the terms and find the common factors use the distributive property
