Explanation:

 

Factorization

 

In mathematics, factorization (also factorisation in British English) or factoring is the decomposition of an object (for example, a number, a polynomial, or a matrix) into a product of other objects, or factors, which when multiplied together give the original. For example, the number 15 factors into primes as 3 × 5, and the polynomial x2 − 4 factors as (x − 2) (x + 2).

The aim of factoring is usually to reduce something to "basic building blocks," such as numbers to prime numbers, or polynomials to irreducible polynomials.

Factorization of polynomials

 

In mathematics and computer algebra, polynomial factorization refers to factoring a polynomial into irreducible polynomials over a given field.
