Which statement about 6x^{2} + 7x – 10 is true?

One of the factors is (x + 3).

One of the factors is (x + 1).

One of the factors is (x + 2).

One of the factors is (x  2).
Factorization of degree 2 expressions gives 2 factors generally, which are also referred to as the zeros of the expression.
Answer: Option c) i.e. (x + 2) is one of the factors of the given expression.
Go through the explanation to understand better.
Explanation:
Given expression: 6x^{2} + 7x – 10
On factorizing the given expression, we get:
⇒ 6x^{2} + (12x  5x)  10
⇒ 6x^{2} + 12x  5x  10
⇒ 6x(x + 2) 5(x + 2)
⇒ (6x  5) (x + 2)
Thus, option c) i.e. (x + 2) is one of the factors of the given expression.
