Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you multiply the coefficient of x^2 the constant here it is 6*2=12 then the coefficient of x =13 so all you need to get is a pair of numbers whose sum =13 and whose product = 12 so in your case it is 12 and 1 so we will rewrite the expression as 6x^2 12xx+2 =6x(x2)1(x2) take (x2) common it will be = (6x1)(x2) hope that is what you are looking for :)
