No. It factors to (11x - 13)(2x - 3)

Yes.

i know what 2 prime numbers are. you want to know? do you really want to know. well, heres the answer. i don't know what 2 prime numbers are but i do know what 2 prime numbers are. sorry. hahaha. :)

If you know one linear factor, then divide the polynomial by that factor. The quotient will then be a polynomial whose order (or degree) is one fewer than that of the one that you stared with. The smaller order may make it easier to factorise.

If a number cannot be factored it is a prime number.

two factors is a binomial three factors is a trinomial four of more is a polynomial the product of any of these is just a polynomial

I suppose you mean factoring the polynomial. You can check by multiplying the factors - the result should be the original polynomial.

Any polynomial in which there are at least two co-prime coefficients will have 1 as the greatest monomial factor.
