I have no code for this, but I've been trying to think about how to start. I tried to do some loops, but couldn't grasp the basic task at hand. I'm not asking you to do this for me since I am only doing it for the fun of doing it. I'm just stuck. I don't know how to make "x" a symbol for a variable (in the console input). I only want it to factor REALLY basic things such as x^2-4. I was thinking if I can get the basic principle down, I can add on from there. Back on topic, well I just need to know how to get it started. Is there a header for things like this? Is this a more advanced area (meaning out of my league)? I want to push myself, but don't want to be too overzealous. Well, all help is appreciated.
