    First multiply the first term by the last term (3)(8) = 24 Then find factors that multiply to get 24 and add to get 2. (-4)(6)

    Then rewrite the equation using those two terms in place of the 2 3x^2 -4x + 6x = 8

    Then factor by grouping: (3x^2 -4x) + (6x - 8) x(3x-4) + 2(3x - 4)

    Then factor out the 3x - 4: (3x - 4)(x + 2) That will be your final answer
