one last question and im going to bed can factorization help solve a quadratic equation if it is made up of a prime polynomial

OpenStudy (anonymous):

OpenStudy (anonymous):

OpenStudy (anonymous):

ok wait

OpenStudy (anonymous):

no no sorry i didn't read u wrote prime polynomial AS IF THERE ARE PRIME POLYNOMIAL NOTHING CAN BE TAKEN COMMON SO ANSWER IS NO :)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Do you mean prime coefficients and constant?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

normal definition of "prime" means that it cannot be factored. of course you need refrence to what "ring; you are factoring over. example $x^2-2$ is "prime" over the integers but $x^2-2=(x+\sqrt{2})(x-\sqrt{2})$ if you are factoring over reals. similarly $x^2+1$ is prime over reals but is $(x+i)(x-i)$ if you allow complex numbers
