Factor trinomials with the "swing method"

This is a very interesting educational video on how to find the factor trinomials using the swing method. Let us take an example and find the factor trinomials for 2xsquare-13x-45. Let us use the swing method. So now we will get 2xsquare -13x-45. You have to find the suitable factors of 90. It is 18 and 5. If you multiply 18 by 5 you will get 90. You will get (x-18over2)(x+5over2). The final answer is (x-9)(2x+5). Now we have found out the factor trinomials of 2xsquare-13x-45. This swing method is very easy. This video is very useful for mathematics students.
