How do you factor #2(x^2) + 9x + 7#?
We know seven is a prime number so its only factors are 7 and 1 therefore we know our final answer will look something like this:
We also know that 2 is a prime number therefore our x coefficients will be 2 and 1.
we know that
so to get our
So to times 7 by 1 we put 1 in the opposite bracket, and then do the same for 1 and 2.
So the final answer is:
