Hey, could anyone please offer some insight and solve: 30x+4x^2-16x^3 I'm sure once I see it I can keep doing it without assistance. Thank You!

30x+4x^2-16x^3 = 30x +4x^2 -16x^3 Factor out the common 2x, = (2x)(15 +2x -8x^2) Then factor the 15 +2x -8x^2, = (2x)(5 +4x)(3 -2x) So, x = 0, or, x = -5/4, or, x = 3/2 --------------answer.
Thanks guys, very quick response! I now know the proper way to re-order it to make it something I'm used to seeing.
