## Can Mathway do factoring?

Enter the expression you want to factor in the editor. The Factoring Calculator transforms complex expressions into a product of simpler factors. It can factor expressions with polynomials involving any number of vaiables as well as more complex functions.

**Can you factor all Trinomials?**

However, if the coefficients of all three terms of a trinomial don’t have a common factor, then you will need to factor the trinomial with a coefficient of something other than 1. To factor a trinomial in the form ax2 + bx + c, find two integers, r and s, whose sum is b and whose product is ac.

**How do you factor a trinomial with two variables?**

To factor a trinomial with two variables, the following steps are applied:

- Multiply the leading coefficient by the last number.
- Find the sum of two numbers that add to the middle number.
- Split the middle term and group in twos by removing the GCF from each group.
- Now, write in factored form.

### How do you factor 3x 2 8×4?

1 Answer

- Multiply the a and c terms together which in this case is 3 and 4 . 3×4=12.
- Find factors of 12 that when added together will get you to the b term, which is 8 . Those two are 2 and 6 .
- Expand and factor with grouping. Closely follow the steps.

**What are some methods for factoring A trinomial?**

Methods for Factoring Trinomials Apply an algorithm to rewrite a trinomial as a four term polynomial Use factoring by grouping to factor a trinomial Use a shortcut to factor trinomials of the form x 2 + b x + c Factor trinomials of the form a x 2 + b x + c Recognize where to place negative signs when factoring a trinomial Recognize when a polynomial is a difference of squares, and how it would factor as the product of two binomials Apply an algorithm to rewrite a trinomial as a four term polynomial Use factoring by grouping to factor a trinomial Use a shortcut to factor trinomials of the form x 2 + b x + c Factor trinomials of the form a x 2 + b x + c Recognize where to place negative signs when factoring a trinomial

**What is the easiest way to factor polynomials?**

When a polynomial has four or more terms, the easiest way to factor it is to use grouping. In this method, you look at only two terms at a time to see if any techniques become apparent. For example, you may see a Greatest Common Factor (GCF) in two terms, or you may recognize a trinomial as a perfect square.

## What is a factor polynomial?

Factorization of a Polynomial. A factor of polynomial P(x) is any polynomial which divides evenly into P(x). For example, x + 2 is a factor of the polynomial x 2 – 4. The factorization of a polynomial is its representation as a product its factors. For example, the factorization of x 2 – 4 is (x – 2)(x + 2).

**What is factored expression?**

Factoring is the process by which one tries to make a mathematical expression look like a multiplication problem by looking for factors. Both numerical and algebraic expressions can be factored using some specific method(s).
