The polynomial x^2 + 13x + 40 can be factored as follows:

x^2 + 13x + 40

=> x^2 + 8x + 5x + 40

=> x(x + 8) + 5(x + 8)

=> (x + 5)(x + 8)

**The factorized form of x^2 + 13x + 40 is (x + 5)(x + 8)**

Given expression -> x^2 + 13x + 40

=> x^2 + 8x + 5x + 40 [ Using middle term factorisation method : product (P)= 40x^2, sum/diff (s)= 8x + 5x = 13x, ]

=> x(x + 8) + 5(x + 8)

=> (x +8)(x +5)
