can all parablas be expressed in factered form
(explain with examples)
thank-you
You're from Canada? Then you should know that it's "parabola" and "factor."
It depends on what you want. You can always put a parabola into the vertex form:
if you would consider that factored.
However, if you are given , where a, b, and c are integers, and want to write it as
then the answer is, in general, no if you are talking about integer d, e, f, and g.
Ex:
There are not even any real numbers d, e, f, and g such that the right hand side factors.
