In my textbook, there's a question I came across:

*When you use graphing technology to factor a polynomial function, which type of factors are difficult to recognize from the graph?*

I'm not entirely sure how I should answer this. When I graph a polynomial function to look for the zeros, the zeros are fairly simple to identify (that's how I understood the question- when you're "factoring a polynomial function using graphing technology," don't you look for the zeros of the function?). There's no answer key for this question.

How would you answer this?

Thank you! :)
