(1): "x2" was replaced by "x^2".
Step 1 :
Trying to factor by splitting the middle term
1.1 Factoring x2+x-4
The first term is, x2 its coefficient is 1 .
The middle term is, +x its coefficient is 1 .
The last term, "the constant", is -4
Step-1 : Multiply the coefficient of the first term by the constant 1 • -4 = -4
Step-2 : Find two factors of -4 whose sum equals the coefficient of the middle term, which is 1 .
Observation : No two such factors can be found !!
Conclusion : Trinomial can not be factored
Final result :
x2 + x - 4
