# How do you factor y= 2x^2 + 5x + 3 ?

$y = \left(2 x + 3\right) \left(x + 1\right)$
$y = 2 {x}^{2} + 5 x + 3$ To factorise $2 {x}^{2} + 5 x + 3$ we can write the equation as $y = 2 {x}^{2} + 2 x + 3 x + 3$ or $y = 2 x \left(x + 1\right) + 3 \left(x + 1\right)$ or $y = \left(2 x + 3\right) \left(x + 1\right)$[Answer]
