Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3first divide thru by 2 = 2(2x^2 +6xy + x + y) now we need to find a common binomial factor if possible combining 2x^2 and x : x(2x + 1)  cant to this with 6xy + y combining 2x^2 and 6xy : 2x(x + 3y)  cant do this with x + y ............ 6xy and x: x( 6y+1)  no ................ 6xy and y : y ( 6x+1)  no method wont work with this polynomial
