If I have a funktion like: f[x_] = (a + b x + c x^2) (2x - 2x^2) How can I factor it like that? f[x_] = a (2x-2x^2) + b x (2x-2x^2) + c x^2 (2x-2x^2) \_______/ \_________/ \___________/ I II III And how can I get those factors? I -> (2x-2x^2) II -> x (2x-2x^2) III -> x^2 (2x-2x^2) Answers are greatly appreciated. Bernd
