Factoring a polynomial with two variables is simple. The following examples will help you to factor polynomials with two variables.
There is a common factor to the two terms. It is the 10y2. Factor it out:
Factor the polynomial with 2 different variables:
How to resolve the problem?
1. The first term coefficient is 20 and the third term coefficient is -10.
Find the product:
2. Find two factors of the -200 that add to 17, it is the second term coefficient.
These factors are 25 and -8:
3. Replace 17xy with 25xy - 8xy:
4. Group the positive and negative terms so:
5. Factor out the common factors: 5x and -2y:
6. And the final answer:
