Factoring techniques, when coupled with the quadratic
formula, give the ability to solve almost any
**quadratic equation**(an equation with the highest exponent
of 2).

The first, simplest approach to solving a quadratic equation is through factoring.

Here, we want to solve the equation $3{x}^{2}+5x=-2$by factoring.
