i have trouble factoring this equation any time x^2 has a number before it i get confused and don't know how to factor
how would you solve this
-3x^2+5x-2

  • Math - ,

    Find two factors for each end term (3,-1 or -3,1) and (2,-1 or -2,1).

    Figure how they could be summed to get the middle term.

    However, I could not do this. Do you have a typo?

    3x^2 + 5x - 2 = (3x-1)(x+2)
