First, factor out the GCF, 2. 2(x^2 - 3x - 18) 2(x - 6)(x + 3)
Ok, find two numbers that will give you a product of \[-72 (2 \times -36)\] and that will add up to \[-6\] The two numbers in this case would be -12 and 6. So we rewrite the equation as \[2x^2 -12x+6x-36\] and then factor out the common factors \[2x(x-6)+6(x-6)\]
Can you go on from there?
