**Factor of a Polynomial Factorization of a Polynomial**

A factor of polynomial*P*(*x*) is any polynomial which divides evenly into *P*(*x*). For example, *x* + 2 is a factor of the polynomial *x*^{2} – 4.

The factorization of a polynomial is its representation as a product its factors. For example, the factorization of *x*^{2} – 4 is (*x* – 2)(*x* + 2).
