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

Feb 5, 2016

$\left(2 x + 1\right) \left(x - 3\right)$

#### Explanation:

$2 \cdot {x}^{2} - 5 \cdot x - 3 = 2 \cdot {x}^{2} - 6 \cdot x + x - 3 = 2 \cdot x \left(x - 3\right) + 1 \left(x - 3\right) = \left(2 x + 1\right) \left(x - 3\right) \left[A n s\right]$
