Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First observe that 2 is a common factor;factor it out you get : \[2(3x^2  xy  4y^2)\] Further observe that the square variables form the product in between when their square root is taken, thus we take the extremes and put them together with a single degree as such : \[(3x  4y)\] Then we multiply this by (x+y);plus because we have two negative terms. We put them together and we have our answer!
