##### 1 Answer

Rewrite

as

Assuming only integer values appear in the factoring (not necessarily true, but easier if it is)

we are looking for integer values for

such that

(the negative sign on the coefficient

and the positive sign on

Since the only positive integer factors of

It is a fairly simply matter to discover

That is

Which implies there is only one solution (
