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
can you try or do you want me to do this with you ?
a is 1 b is5 and c is 6
i know that you can do it this way (x ) (x )
but i get confused on the middle part (something about the product of the first and last gives the middle...?
u still ther?
check your b
oh its -5
what is the product of a*c?
what are the factors of 6 then choose the ones that will add up to -5?
-2 and -3
good now rewrite the original with -2 and -3 instead of just -5
so the answer would be (x-2) (x-3)
yes but I was showing all the steps to get there
oh ok continue
how did u get to x(x-2)-3(x-2)?
review the steps I listed with going through the problem
ok i get it, thanx! can u help me with another question?
ok open new post
