Factoring has always been one of my weak areas in math. I'm fine at expanding using the FOIL method, but I can't do the reverse process to save myself. I'm also really bad with guessing and checking, I need a formula if I'm to be efficient. This isn't too big of a problem with quadratics, but I really have no idea how to factor higher degree polynomials. And I'm really going to need to get good at factoring, as we are starting to do more advanced factoring in my math class (FST).

Sample of what it is I struggle with:

Factor x^3 - 6x^2 + 13x - 10

So if anyone can explain a method on how to simplify a polynomial by reverse factoring (if that's even what it's called), or if you know of a video or website that explains it very well, I'd really appreciate it :3

*Edit: We're also working with imaginary numbers, so I'm pretty sure *i* is somewhere in the answer to that sample problem.
