Give an example with your explanation. Thank You DeniseThis question is from textbook Answer by Mathtut(3670)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!ok a is given in our scenario : F is made up of x multiplied by itself. is made up of factors of c multiplied by 1x and combined : L is factors of c multiplied together : for example : : F=1x*1x O= I= L= : meaning when you reverse FOIL that the first part of factors making up a polynomial of the type is 1x and the last part of the factors comes from factors of c, which when combined with x make up the coefficient of b. : hence the factors are (x+2)(x+3)
