    1st 2 terms factored 3m^2: 3m^2(3m- p^2) last terms factored -p:-p(3m -p^2) since we can see that the new common factor is 3m-p^2, so should be (3m -p^2)(3m^2-p)

    not you're fine, I just became strong at this, so I'm still a little doubtful of myself. but I rechecked and I still seem correct, I'm horrible at explaining my reasoning, but but I appear to be correct never the less. lol
