## How do you solve equations by factoring?

The Solve by Factoring process will require four major steps:

- Move all terms to one side of the equation, usually the left, using addition or subtraction.
- Factor the equation completely.
- Set each factor equal to zero, and solve.
- List each solution from Step 3 as a solution to the original equation.

**What is the quadratic formula for factoring?**

Factoring quadratics is a method of expressing the quadratic equation ax2 + bx + c = 0 as a product of its linear factors as (x – k)(x – h), where h, k are the roots of the quadratic equation ax2 + bx + c = 0. This method is also is called the method of factorization of quadratic equations.

#### What does it mean to “solve a quadratic equation”?

Solving a quadratic equation means finding those values of the variable that make the equation true. For example, solving 6x 2 +10x+3=7 means finding the values of x that make this equation true. If x=-2, 6(-2) 2 +10(-2)+3=7.
