#### Solution Preview

With the AC method, multiply the leading coefficient and the constant. Factor the product into two integers. For each pair, add up the integers and see which pair will result in the number in the middle. Then take the middle term apart according to the pair arrangement. This method will only work if the polynomial is arranged from the ...
