Factor Trinomials x^{2}+bx+c Type Fun Game Help Tips:  When you factor the trinomial x^{2}+5x+6 the answer is (x+2)(x+3) . From the answer, notice that '2 add 3' = 5 and that '2 times 3' = 6 .  In general, when you factor the trinomial x^{2}+bx+c the answer is (x+s)(x+t) , where the 's add t' = b and the 's times t' = c .  This means the question x^{2}+bx+c can be thought of as x^{2}+(s+t)x+st . You can check the answer by multiplying (x+s)(x+t) together.  Similarly, when you factor the trinomial x^{2}5x+6 the answer is (x2)(x3). From the answer, notice that '2 add 3' = 5 and that '2 times 3' = +6 .  Also, when you factor the trinomial x^{2}x6 the answer is (x+2)(x3). From the answer, notice that '+2 add 3' = 1 and that '+2 times 3' = 6 .  Refresh/Reload the web page to start over again.
