Solving a Quadratic Equation by Factoring
Step 1:- Write in standard form. Rewrite the equation if necessary so that one side is 0.
Step 2:- Factor the polynomial.
Step 3:- Use the zero-factor property. Set each variable factor equal to 0.
Step 4:- Find the solution(s). Solve each equation formed in Step 3.
Step 5 :- Check each solution in the original equation.
