How To Use ‘factor()’ Command In MatLab®?

>> syms x
a = factor(x^2-3*x+2)
a =
[ x - 1, x - 2]

You can see an example of the use of the factor()’ command in Matlab® above. We created a symbolic variable ‘x’ with the ‘syms’ command. Then we directly typed our polynomial equation into the ‘factor()’ command. 

As an answer, you can see the two roots of our equation. 


Here you can see that, the use of the factor()’ command in Matlab® for factorization operations is very easy.
