How do you factor this completely?

6x-x^3-x^2

  • Math -

    6x-x^3-x^2
    = -x(x^2 + x - 6)
    = -x(x+3)(x-2)

  • Math -

    Factor 6X-X^3-X^2 completely.

    Step1. Arrange exponents in decreasing order: -x^3-x^2+6x.

    Step2.-X(X^2+X-6)

    Step3. -X(X-2)(X+3).

    The equation in step2 is not completely
    factored, because the trinomial can be
    factored into 2 binomials (step 3).
