For Problems 15-20, factor each polynomial completely. 6 x 2 − 5 x − 4

To determine

To Find:

The factorized form of a polynomial 6x25x4.

Explanation

Approach:

The quadratic polynomial can be simplified by the help of basic algebra. First, need to write the polynomial in standard form ax2+bx+c.

Factorize the polynomial by middle term splitting method where the coefficient of x is split into two numbers such that their product is equal to the product of the coefficient of x2 and the constant term.

Calculation:

The given expression is 6x25x4.

Factorised polynomial by splitting the middle term appropriately:

6x25x4=6x2(83)x4=6x
