Polynomial | 3x^{2} + 5x -2 |
Multiply coefficient of first term and last term | (3) x ( -2) = -6 |
Find the factors of -6 to get the middle term 5 | Factors ---> +6 and -1 |
Write polynomial using these factors | 3x^{2}+ 6x - 1x -2 |
Find the common factors from 1st two terms and last two terms | 3x(x +2)-1(x+2) |
Take common parenthesis as a common factor |
Factors are ( 3x-1)(x+2) |
