# Thread: (math question) Do you know trinomial factoring?

1. ## (math question) Do you know trinomial factoring? 2. ##  3. ## As Fate has suggested, google could help you a lot as you already know what you need to search for, you could post a problem or something, even if I know what it is there would be no beneficial value for you from my answer 'Yes'. 4. ## NOPE

NOPE

math sucks 5. ## I know what is Trinominal but NO idea what is Trinominal Factoring 6. ## Hell with math, it's 1 day away from Friday. 7. ##  Also if you can't get it, goto this site

Btw I don't plan to study that factoring thing, the difficulty is 9/10. 10. ## Yus. Math is love, okay. If you want some online calculator or something, look for wolfram. But it'd be better if you learn it instead of being dependent on calculators. Use calculators for checking your answers only.  11. ## I am going to use [U][2x2+10x+25/U] as an example.

First, you must find the factors of the first.
(2x+__)(x+__)

Then, find the factor of the last.
(2x+5)(x+5)

Check if the factors will yield the given equation above.

That's the only thing I know. 12. ##  Originally Posted by Artificial Intelligence I am going to use [U][2x2+10x+25/U] as an example.

I'm answering a worksheet and can you help me with it? I"ll ask you questions then you answer them and help me on the worksheet. LEL 13. ## its hard to explain. But basically its ax squared + bx +c.
For example, x squared + 4x - 32.

Solving it is pretty easy. You just need to find 2 numbers that add up to give the b value and these 2 numbers can multiply together to give the c value.
Eg. x squared + 4x - 32: the 2 numbers are -4 and 8
8 + (-4)=4
8 x (-4)=-32

Using these two numbers, put them into brackets like this (x-4)(x+8)
The whole thing is really easy and basic when a=1, but when a>1 or a<1 then it gets a bit more complicated.

This is the way I was taught. Sorry if its not that clear.

I can try to explain the more complicated bits in messages if you need them. pm me #### Posting Permissions
