Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

ax^2+bx +c can be factored using

-The Quadratic Formula 

-Factoring  

-Completing the Square

 



For the quadratic formula we use the following formula for finding roots of the equation

x=-b+- sqrt(b^2-4ac)/4a


In the factoring method we have to make two factors which on multiplication gives the trinomial.There is a method in this which involves trial and error.


in the method of completing of square we have to transform the trinomial into a perfect binomial square.certain trinomial can be used to find out roots of the equation.
