    multiply 20 by the coefficient of h^2 which is 3 first. so you'll have h^2 + 32h +60, then you can factor that to (h+30)(h+2) then divide each of those answers by the original coefficient of 3. so h+30/3 = (h+10) and (h+2)/3 = (3h+2, because dividing 2 by 3 gives you a fraction, you bring the denominator of that fraction to the variable. so (h+10) and (3h+2) are your answers..

    if you ever have a coefficient, and you can't take a common coefficient out, you do that. just multiply the coefficient of x^2 to the number without a variable at the end, factor it normally, then divide the 2 factors by the number you multiplied the last number by in the beginning.
