**Quidditch**, Wednesday, October 3, 2007 at 11:20pmThere are times where they do not factor nicely. A quick check is to calculate the sqrt(b^2 - (4*a*c)) part of the quadratic equation. Here it looks like that would be sqrt(28) or 2*sqrt(7). This pretty much says it is not easily factored by inspection. Use the complete quadratic formula for the answer.
