### What is a polynomial calculator?

The calculator will find (with steps shown) the sum, difference, product, and result of the division of two polynomials (quadratic, binomial, trinomial, etc.). It will also calculate the roots of the polynomials and factor them. Both univariate and multivariate polynomials are accepted.

What is a missing factor equation?

If factor times factor equals product, and the opposite of multiplying is dividing, then we can say: Product / Factor = Missing Factor.

How do you factor multiple polynomials?

## What are the factors of polynomials?

When the terms of a polynomial have a common factor, the distributive law, is used to factor the polynomial. One factor is the greatest common factor of all the terms of the polynomial. The other factor is the entire quotient, obtained by dividing each term of the polynomial by the common factor; that is, Factor the expression 3 a2-a.

### How to factor polynomials completely?

Factor the integers into their prime factors.

• Write the factors in the exponent form.
• Take the common bases each to its lowest exponent.
• What are linear factors of a polynomial?

The linear factors of a polynomial are the first-degree equations that are the building blocks of more complex and higher-order polynomials. Linear factors appear in the form of ax + b and cannot be factored further. The individual elements and properties of a linear factor can help them be better understood.

How to find the zeros of a polynomial calculator?

Use the Rational Zero Theorem to list all possible rational zeros of the function.

• Use synthetic division to evaluate a given possible zero by synthetically dividing the candidate into the polynomial.
• Repeat step two using the quotient found from synthetic division.
• Find the zeros of the quadratic function.
