Find the factors for 


Consider the given equation above

You notice that there are five terms at the given equation, which means that we have to group three terms and then another group for the rest of the terms. If you look at the given equation, the first two terms and the last term will be a perfect trinomial square if you group them. Let's arrange the given equation and group the terms as follows


Take out their common factor which is (m - 2n), and therefore, the factors of the given equation are
