To factor a trinomial (three-term expression) of the form n2+bn+c, find the two numbers h and k that are factors of c and add up to b. Then, write those numbers in this template: (n+h)(n+k)

For the trinomial n2+7n-44, c = -44 and b = 7. The two numbers that are factors of -44 and add up to 7 are 11 and -4. So, the factored form would be (n+11)(n-4).
