## How to Find Factoring Trinomials?

A trinomial is defined as a type of polynomial that has three terms. For example 12x^{2} + 50xy + y^{2}

Follow the below steps to factorize a trinomial:

- Factor out if there is a factor common to all the terms of the trinomial.
- Write trinomial as the product of its factors.

**Solved Example:**

Find the factors of the given trinomial for 2x^{2} + 5xy + 3y^{2}

**Solution:**

⇒ 2x^{2} + 2xy + 3xy + 3y^{2}

⇒ 2x(x + y) + 3y(x + y)

⇒ (2x + 3y)(x + y)

Therefore, (2x + 3y)(x + y) are the factors of the given trinomial 2x^{2} + 5xy + 3y^{2}

Similarly, you can try the calculator to find the factors of the given trinomial:

- 2x
^{2}- x^{4}+ 5 - x
^{2}y^{2}+ y^{4}+ x
