Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lets first try 3*5 (4x+3)(2x5) next we multiply it out and see if we get back to our original problem. :15=8x^214x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(4x+3)(2x5) 8x^220x+6x15 8x^214x15. we know this is right, because we got back to:8x^214x15

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so (4x+3)(2x5) is the right answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when we multiply that out, we get : x^2+2x3. which means this is right. remember how we divided 6x^2? well this is when we put it back. so the final factored answer is: 6x^2(x^2+2x3)
