How to Factor Quadratic Equations?

You can factor simple quadratic equations of the form dx^2 + ex+ f= 0 by finding those two numbers that when multiplied gives us the constant f, and when added gives the constant e. For example, the quadratic x^2 + 8x+12=0 can be factored using this method into (x+2)(x+6). We see that f = 2 x 6, while e = 2 + 6. However, there are rules you can use when you cannot see the factors easily or the quadratic is more difficult to solve. You can find more information here:
