Step 1

We need to factorize the qudratic equation : f(x) = 3x+ 2x - 1. We will solve this by 'splitting the middle term' method.

Step 2

The coefficient of x2 is 3, the coefficient of x is 2 and the constant term is -1. 

Now, we have to split the coefficient of x in such a way, that the product of the splitted terms is equal to the product of coefficient of x2 and the constant term. The calculation is shown below:

Step 3

Now, the after splitting the middle term of f(...
