Factoring in mathematics refers to the process of breaking down a polynomial or an expression into its factors, which are the expressions that multiply together to give the original polynomial or expression. This is done by finding common factors, using methods such as factoring by grouping, factoring by difference of squares, factoring by sum/difference of cubes, and factoring by quadratic trinomials. Factoring is an important skill in algebra and is used in various mathematical applications, such as solving equations, simplifying expressions, and finding roots or zeros of functions. For example, factoring the quadratic expression x^2 + 5x + 6 gives (x + 2)(x + 3), which are the factors that multiply together to give the original expression. View Solution Guide
