# How would one factor the following expression  -3x^2+ 5x - 2 ?

Jul 12, 2016

One real root is (x1 = 1) and the other is $\left(x 2 = \frac{c}{a}\right) = \left(x 2 = \frac{2}{3}\right)$
$f \left(x\right) = - 3 \left(x - 1\right) \left(x - \frac{2}{3}\right) = \left(x - 1\right) \left(- 3 x + 2\right)$
