    ax^2+bx+c You must find a multiplicative of 25 that adds to 60. But you also have to find a multiplicative of 36 also. Because if you just used (x+5) it wouldn't add to sixty.

    okay to start it helps a lot that both 36 and 25 are perfect squares. So if I were to factor this I would start out by factoring the 36. the square root of 36 is 6 so: (6x±__)(6x±__) So now we move onto the second part (which this is quite easy because like I said before 25 is a perfect square as well so since the square root of 25 is 5 and the 30 in the middle is positive you're left with (6x+5)(6x+5)
