you're almost there
i've got to factorise and i've used the steps i've been shown so far to get to this: multiply 6 and -6 to get -36. find two numbers that add together to make 5 and multiply to make -36. i came to -4 and 9. i put them into the middle of the equation while removing the 5x as instructed so i came to grouped them and then factored them . just wondering where i go from here. any detailed steps would be appreciated
If you have x(6x - 4) 3(3x-2) --> you forgot the plus sign here,
the next step would be 2x(3x-2)+3(3x-2). Both factors need to be the same.
For (6x-4) you can write 2(3x-2)
Now, if you have 2x(3x-2)+3(3x-2), you can factor to (2x+3)(3x-2), which is 6x^2+5x-6
