Factor to Solve

"Factor to Solve" is a common method for solving quadratic equations accomplished by factoring a trinomial into two binomials and identifying the values of that make each binomial equal to zero.factored form

The factored form of a quadratic function is , where and are the roots of the function.Factoring

Factoring is the process of dividing a number or expression into a product of smaller numbers or expressions.Quadratic form

A polynomial in quadratic form looks like a trinomial or binomial and can be factored like a quadratic expression.quadratic function

A quadratic function is a function that can be written in the form , where , , and are real constants and .Roots

The roots of a function are the values of*x*that make

*y*equal to zero.

standard form
