    Do you know about simple, complex, etc trinomials? Also, cause I'm not too bright, what's factoring.

    You know that the numbers produced from that equation must Add to the middle coefficient and multiply to the end coefficient, right?

    But since their is a coefficient on the first value too, whatever numbers are produced my multiply to the result of the multiplication of the beginning and ending values.

    So, what multiplies to 3x5, and adds to 8?

    Teh last value multiplied by the first value. Do you have a textbook or listen in class? If you have a class which you could have listened to (I'm not judging, just making sure here).

    IT's hard to understand internet sarcasm. Anyways, just do the same thing for the other equation.

    Also, if, on the same fraction, you see 2 similar values (e.g. (x-1)), you can cancel both of them out, and cross them how to simplify further.
