**How do I factor polynomials?**

Expand the polynomial into its prime factors. It includes algebraic symbols as well.

- Find the factors in every term, both numbers and symbols
- Move factors outside the brackets
- Finally, you can calculate the factor of the polynomial.

**How will you use the factor calculator?**

The **AllCalculator.net's**** **factor calculator makes factors easily. It has been designed to help you in factoring the expressions within a second. Some of the steps that you should follow in the factor calculator to get an exact result are as follows:

- First, place the expression which is to be factorized in th format of (4x^(2)+20x+16)
- Press calculate to find the factors

The usage of this calculator is very easy and simple, so you can take advantage of this smart tool to factorize complex expressions within a second.

**How will you find the factors?**

You can find the factors by the following methods:

- The multiplication approach
- The division approach
- Factorization by grouping

**Multiplication approach**

- Express the original number as a product of two elements
- There are different ways to express the original number as a product of two numbers
- Each distinct set of numbers used t create the product is a factor

**Division approach**

- Divide the original number by all values that are lower or equal to it.
- If there is no remainder, the value used for division is a factor.

**Factorization by grouping**

- Group the terms of the large polynomial according to their common factors.
- Divide the large polynomial into two smaller ones with terms with the same factors.
- Factor each of the smaller groups separately.

**Some of the other factors are:**

- Find the square root of the integer number' n' and round it to the nearest whole number, which we'll call 's.'
- Start with one and find the corresponding factor pair 'n ÷ 1 = n' to determine if one and 'n' are factor pairs.
- Record the factor pairs in which division results in a whole number and no remainder until you reach the square root rounded to 's.'
- By the time you reach 'n ÷ s,' you should have noted all factor pairs that can successfully factor the number' n.'

**Are there any tips available to factor polynomials?**

Some of the steps given below are used to factor the polynomial are:

- Expand the polynomial into its prime factors, including algebraic symbols
- Identify the factors that appear in every term, including numbers and symbols
- Move common factors outside the brackets
- Simplify to factor the polynomial
