# Factorization With ‘factor()’ Command In MatLab®

Symbolic operations are very useful in Matlab®. You can do factorization operations in Matlab® if you know how to define your equation or polynomial in Matlab® as a symbolic expression.

Take a look at the examples below that are executed in the Matlab® command window to understand factorization.

## 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.

## Conclusion

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