Trying to factor by pulling out :

2.2 Factoring: x3 - 3x2 + 3x - 2 Thoughtfully split the expression at hand into groups, each group having two terms:Group 1: 3x - 2Group 2: -3x2 + x3Pull out from each group separately :Group 1: (3x - 2) • (1)Group 2: (x - 3) • (x2)Bad news !! Factoring by pulling out fails : The groups have no common factor and can not be added up to form a multiplication.

2.3 Find roots (zeroes) of : F(x) = x3 - 3x2 + 3x - 2Polynomial Roots Calculator is a set of methods aimed at finding values ofxfor which F(x)=0 Rational Roots Test is one of the above mentioned tools. It would only find Rational Roots that is numbers x which can be expressed as the quotient of two integersThe Rational Root Theorem states that if a polynomial zeroes for a rational numberP/Q then P is a factor of the Trailing Constant and Q is a factor of the Leading CoefficientIn this case, the Leading Coefficient is 1 and the Trailing Constant is -2. The factor(s) are: of the Leading Coefficient : 1of the Trailing Constant : 1 ,2 Let us test ....

-21 -2.00 -28.00
11 1.00 -1.00
21 2.00 0.00x - 2

The Factor Theorem states that if P/Q is root of a polynomial then this polynomial can be divided by q*x-p Note that q and p originate from P/Q reduced to its lowest terms In our case this means that x3 - 3x2 + 3x - 2can be divided with x - 2

Trying to factor by splitting the middle term

2.5Factoring x2-x+1 The first term is, x2 its coefficient is 1.The middle term is, -x its coefficient is -1.The last term, "the constant", is +1Step-1 : Multiply the coefficient of the first term by the constant 1•1=1Step-2 : Find two factors of 1 whose sum equals the coefficient of the middle term, which is -1.

-1+-1=-2
1+1=2

Observation : No two such factors can be found !! Conclusion : Trinomial can not be factored
