    \[6x ^{2} + x- 1 \] how would you decompose the x term in this polynomial?

    you can use quadratic formula \[ x = (-b \pm \sqrt{b ^{2} - 4ac}) / 2a\]

    its by FOIL method (2x +1) ( 3x-1)

    you look for two numbers that are factors of 6 that when multiplied to factors of one you get negative one but when added you get positive one
