How do I factor polynomials and trinomials?
If `P(x)=a_nx^n+a_(n-1)x^(n-1)+cdots+a_1x+a_0`, then you can factor `P` by finding solutions of algebraic equation ` ` `a_nx^n+a_(n-1)x^(n-1)+cdots+a_1x+a_0=0` which can sometimes be quite difficult.
There are formulas for solving equations of degree lower than 5, but there are no...
