This formula is an outcome of the quadratic formula. b. 3x2 – 7x + 2 b2 – 4ac = (–7)2 – 4(3)(2) = 49 – 24 = 25 which is a squared number, Factoring Trinomials II-the ac-method Theorem: If b2 – 4ac = 0, 1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, .. i.e. is a squared number, then the trinomial is factorable. Otherwise, it is not factorable.

- 51. Write 3x2 – 4x – 20 = 3x2 + 6x –10x – 20 put in two groups = (3x2 + 6x ) + (–10x – 20) pull out common factor = 3x(x + 2) – 10 (x + 2) pull out common factor = (3x – 10)(x + 2) Example C. Factor 3x2 – 6x – 20 using the ac-method, if possible. a = 3, c = –20, hence ac = 3(-20) = –60. We need two numbers u and v such that uv = –60 and u + v = –6. After searching all possibilities we found that it's impossible. Hence 3x2 – 6x – 20 is prime. Factoring Trinomials II-the ac-method
