Factorising quadratics of the form ax2 + bx + c, where a is not equal to 1

ax2 + bx + c can be factorised to (mx + n)(px + q). The x2 term has the value a which is not equal to 1. The process is similar to factorising x2 + bx + c in Factorising Quadratics − 1, but this time finding the factors of both a and c and using a combination of these two factors to work out the x term.

Note: the inverse of factorising quadratics is Quadratic Expansion
Note: for a recap on Quadratic Expansion refer to  Quadratic Expansion
