Factoring Quadratic Expressions




A trinomial in the form x2 + ax + b can be factored to equal (x + m)(x + n) when the product of m and n equals b and the sum of m + n equals a.
1: Common factor if you can.
2: Find two integers m and n, that their product is equal to b and their sum is equal to a.
Step 3: Substitute the numbers m and n directly into the expression (x + m)(x + n).
