Alright in class, my teacher can factorize quadratics almost instantly.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I wanted to know if anyone can tell me how to do it his way....

Like if you had

5x^2 + 14x - 3

(x+3)(5x-1)

He writes that instantly, I kind of figured out in the first term, you put the sign that thebterm has... then i get stuck.

By the way I know how to factorize the long way.. but I would like to learn this short way so I can work faster.
