You do it trial and error:

start with the y^2 factor

4,1

1,4

2,2

Then the six factors

6,1

1,6

3,2

2,3

put them together, need to make 25

Hmmm 4*6 +1*1 makes 25.

I hope that helps.

I had asked you earlier, what methods you had learned, but you changed your name again.

You will have to let me know which method I should explain, I use about 3 different methods.
