Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Have you met the "Discriminant"? \((6)^{2}  4(1)(5) = 36 + 20 = 56\) 56 is not a perfect square. You will not be able to factor it. Your factorization is not correct. \((6)^{2}  4(1)(6) = 36 + 24 = 60\) 60 is not a perfect square. You will not be able to factor it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You didn't answer my first question. If you have not met the "Discriminant", that will not make much sense. Anyway, (x1)(x5) = x^2  6x + 5  The sign on the constant term is not correct as you have it factored. Have you encountered ANY situation where things cannot be factored? There are other ways to proceed when factoring fails.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes but all my previous examples and help from people have only factored so I didnt think I was allowed to do a different way

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, we're stuck on these. They can't be factored. I hope the assignment was not meant just to frustrate you. It's time to pull out the Quadratic Formula or "Completing the Square" or anything else you have in your experience.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Since you haven't told us what the question is, it's pretty tough to help you with that. You also haven't shown your work.
