Polynomial Factoring

A handy program to effortlessly factor any polynomial on your TI-84 Plus CE calculator. This program is by far the best available, as it allows for the solving of any number of exponents and never crashes (unlike most others, which fail often).​

First, the program will prompt you to type in the highest exponent. If we wanted to factor the polynomial x^3 –13×2+30x, we would type 3 as the highest exponent. Next, we just type the coefficient of each term, starting with the term with the highest exponent. If this sounds confusing, don’t worry; the program will guide you through all of the steps.​
