$3x^2 - xy - 6x + 2y$

Please can someone help me with this? I cannot find a GCF, nor can I find what to group together.

2. Hello, lax6001

$3x^2 - xy - 6x + 2y$

I cannot find what to group together. . . . . you can't?

We have: . $\underbrace{3x^2 - xy}\;\underbrace{- 6x + 2y}$

Factor: . $x(3x-y) - 2(3x-y)$

Then take out the common factor: . $(3x-y)(x-2)$
