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

Factors

You must look for two numbers with a sum of (-1), and a product of (-30). This, of course, is -6 and 5; so the factors are (x-6) (x+5).

It is useful to know the linear factors of a polynomial because they give you the zeros of the polynomial. If (x-c) is one of the linear factors of a polynomial, then p(c)=0. Here the notation p(x) is used to denoted a polynomial function at p(c) means the value of that function when evaluated at c. Conversely, if d is a zero of the polynomial, then (x-d) is a factor.
