    No I haven't, it's supposed to be a trinomial, maybe that's why I haven't been getting it.

    a trinomial is a fancy way of saying an expression with three terms. this is a quadratic equation, meaning it is a polynomial of the second degree. so you can factorize it using the link i posted,

    the steps to solve that are easy to show on paper; but a pain to describe over a keyboard
