# 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
