Factoring x^2+ bx +c

Factoring x2+ bx +c


Step 1:-  Find pairs whose product is c. Find all pairs of integers whose product is the third term of the trinomial, c.


Step 2:- Find pairs whose sum is b. Choose the pair whose sum is the coefficient of the middle term, b.


If there are no such integers, the polynomial cannot be factored. A polynomial that cannot be factored with integer coefficients is a prime polynomial.
