A quick review question about factoring trinomials.
I know there are two trinomials:
(1) One where the coefficient of x^2 = 1
(2) One where the coefficient of x^2 > 1
I am more concerned about the second one (where the coefficient of x^2 > 1).
MY QUESTION:
Can I use the Grouping Method to factor trinomials whose x^2 coefficient is > 1?
Sample:
3x^2 - 5 x - 2...Can I factor this guy using the Grouping Method?
