How do you factorise

-13x^2+113x-22

• Math -

That polynomial does not factor simply.
The roots of -13x^2+113x-22 = 0
are real numbers, since b^2 - 4 ac = 11625. The expression can be written
-13(x- A)(x-B), where A and B are
A = (-113 + sqrt 11625)/-26 = 0.19926
and
B = (-113 - sqrt 11625)/-26 = 8.49305

-13x^2+113x-22 =
= -13(x-0.19926)(x-8.49305)
= (-13x+2.59038)(x-8.49305)
