Factoring by grouping given polynomial group terms and find the factors

Eg x2 + 5x + 6 = 0

This equation can be written as x2 +3x +2x + 6 ( ie 5x = 3x + 2x)

Group the terms x2 ,3x and 2x, 6

(x2 +3x) + (2x + 6) = 0

Now take common factors from each group

x(x +3) +2(x +3) = 0

x(x +3) is one ...
