I need help trying to factor a trinomial. It has been a while, and I cant remember how to factor a trinomial with x^3. Please help.

Sample problem...

X^3 - 2X^2 + 1

Thanks

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Not sure where to start, I would think I would factor out an X

Maybe: X^2 (1X - 2 + 1)

?????
