The factoring calculator allows to factor an algebraic expression online with steps.

Factoring_calculator online

**Factor calculator** allows **factoring online** an algebraic expression, to achieve **factoring an expression** algebraic
online different methods are used:

- Factoring by search common factors
- Factorization using special expansions
- Factoring online quadratic polynomials

The **factoring calculator** then returns the **factorized form of the algebraic expression** placed in parameter.

The factoring calculator is able to recognize the common factors of an algebraic expression :

- These common factors can be number: Factoring the expression `3x+3`, factoring_calculator(3x+3), return `3(1+x)`
- These common factors can be letters, so factoring expression has `ax+bx`, factoring_calculator(ax+bx), return `x*(a+b)`
- These common factors can be algebraic expressions, so factoring expression has `(x+1)(x+2)+(3x+3)(x+1)` factoring_calculator((x+1)(x+2)+(3x+3)(x+1)) will return the following expression factorized `(x+1)*(5+4*x)`

The factoring calculator is able to recognize the outstanding common identities and using them to factor algebraic expressions.

- the following special expansion `a^2+b^2+2ab=(a+b)^2` is used to factor the expression `1+2x+x^2`, The result returned by the function is `(1+x)^2`
- the following special expansion `a^2+b^2-2ab=(a-b)^2` is used to factor the expression `1-2x+x^2` factoring_calculator(1-2x+x^2), the result returned will be the expression following factored `(1-x)^2`
- the following special expansion `a^2-b^2=(a-b)*(a+b)` is used to factor the expression `1-x^2`, The result returned by the function is `(1-x)(1+x)`

Factor calculator is able to recognize quadratics polynomials and factoring them when possible.

- Thus, the function allows to factor online the following quadratic polynomial `-6-x+x^2`, the result returned by the function is the expression factored `(2+x)*(-3+x)`
- For example by typing factoring_calculator(-1/2+x/2+x^2), returns online factorization of quadratic polynomial ie `(1+x)*(-1/2+x)`
- For getting the factored form of the following polynomial `-21+4*x+x^2`, simply type factoring factoring_calculator(-21+4*x+x^2), then the function returns the factorization of the quadratic polynomial `(7+x)*(-3+x)`

The factoring calculator allows to factor an algebraic expression online with steps.

- factoring_calculator(1+2x+x^2) returns `(x+1)^2`.
- factoring_calculator(1-x^2) returns `(1-x)(1+x)`

- Factoring expression (2+2*x+(x+1)*(x+3)) with the function factoring_calculator((2+2*x+(x+1)*(x+3))) returns `(x+5)*(1+x)`
