coefficient

Suppose the trinomial is x2 + Bx + C You need to find a factor pair of C whose sum is B. If the factors are p and q (that is, pq = C and p+q = B), then the trinomial can be factorised as (x + p)*(x + q).

Suppose the trinomial is x2 + Bx + C You need to find a factor pair of C whose sum is B. If the factors are p and q (that is, pq = C and p+q = B), then the trinomial can be factorised as (x + p)*(x + q).

The sum of -p and -q -

The sum of -p and -q -

The sum of -p and -q -

It is 1 if the two are the only factors.

The answer depends on what p and q are meant to represent.

The sum of p and q means (p+q). The difference of p and q means (p-q).
