## How to Find Quadratic Factoring?

The word "Quadratic" is derived from the word "Quad" which means square. In other words, a quadratic equation is an “equation of degree 2.”

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 Examples on Quadratic Factoring Calculator**

**Example 1:**

Find the 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)

**Example 2:**

Find the factors of given quadratic equation 2x^{2} - 5x - 8 = 0

**Solution:**

Given: a = 2, b = -5, c = -8

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

\(x = {5 \pm \sqrt{(-5)^2+64} \over 4}\)

\(x = {5 + \sqrt{89} \over 4}, x = {5 - \sqrt{89} \over 4}\)

Factors are (x - (5 + **√**89)/4) and (x - (5 - **√**89)/4)

Similarly, you can try the quadratic factoring calculator to find the factors of given quadratic equation for the following:

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