Answer:Step-by-step explanation:We’re going to try two things here.

First an example

x^2 + 10x + 25

If you divide the linear factor by 2 and square the result, you get the last number (25)

The pattern of a trinomial is

x^2 + 2b x + b^2

The factors are

(x + b)(x+ b)

Just divide the linear term by 2
