    Ti83 program for quadratic polynomials?

    Right now I am teaching myself Algebra 1 and Algebra 2, but I find it more so of a time sink than actually learning anything when factoring quadratic polynomials with a coefficient attached to  x^2

    e.g. 2x^2-5x-12, and give you the correct output of (2x+3)(x-4)

    So with that being said does anyone know of a ti83 program that will automatically factor these types of quadratic polynomials?

    Many Thanks

    But note: If you don't make it your business to become competent in factorising quadratics you're in for a world of pain down the track.
