    you need to factor 10 and -3 and and combine them so multiplying and addingg will give -7

    the 10 * -1 and 1 * +3 so its (10x + 3)(x - 1)

    well - this is the way i do it you have to consider the possibilities 10 could factor to 5 * 2 or 10 * 1 and -3 could be 1 * -3 or -1 * 3 so you have to try out different combinations so as to obtain -7 (the middle term) thats how i got 10*1 and 1 * -3 - these factor to the form (ax + b)(cx + d) and adx + bcd is the middle term thats how the result is (10x - 3)(x + 1) the (10 * 1) + (-3 * 1) gives the -7

    these are a bit tricky - and need some practice before you get proficient
