Before learning how to use the factoring trinomials calculator, let’s discuss what the trinomials are and various methods of their factoring. Factoring polynomials is the representation of the polynomial as a product of polynomials of lower degrees. According to the fundamental algebraic theorem each polynomial over the complex numbers can be represented as a product of linear polynomials, including the way up to a constant factor, and the order of the following of the factors. The opposite of factoring polynomials is their extension - multiplication of polynomial factors to obtain the expanded polynomial written as a sum of terms. In algebra, the trinomial is a polynomial represented as the sum of the three components, or a special condition. The most famous type of trinomial is quadratic trinomial – ax2 + bx + c = a. However, not all trinomials are quadratic.
