## How to Find Algebra Factors?

**An equation of the form ax ^{2 }+ bx + c = 0, **where a ≠ 0 is called a quadratic equation and a, b, c are coefficients of a quadratic equation.

To determine the roots of the quadratic equation, we use its roots. If roots of a given quadratic equation are x_{1} and y_{1 }then the factors are (x - x_{1}) and (y - y_{1})

To find the roots of a given quadratic equation, we use the discriminant formula given by \(x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a}\)

**Solved Example:**

Find the algebra factors of given quadratic equation x^{2} + 5x + 6 = 0

**Solution:**

Given: a = 1, b = 5, c = 6

\(x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a}\)

\(x = {-5 \pm \sqrt{5^2-24} \over 2}\)

\(x = {-4 \over 2}, {-6 \over 2}\)

\(x= {-2},{-3}\)

Factors are (x + 2) and (x + 3)

Similarly, you can try the calculator to find the algebra factors for the given quadratic equation:

- 2x
^{2}+ x − 3 = 0 - x
^{2}+ 10x − 11 = 0
