Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It is the same method of factoring trinomial. FIrst look at the 15 and the 4. The product of the two is 60. Then think of two numbers so that the product is 60 and the sum is 16. The two numbers are 10 and 6. So split the 16xy into 10xy and 6y. From there you do factoring by grouping.
