## Factoring Polynomials Made Easy

*Factoring polynomials is writing a given polynomial as the product of other polynomials. Each polynomial in the product is called the factor of the given polynomial.*

**For example; factoring for**

**x**

**²**

**+ 8x + 15**

**can be written as shown below:**

**x**

**²**

**+ 8x + 15 = (x + 3) (x + 5)**
