    4c^2 -6c -6c +9 look at the first two terms : 4c^2 -6c we can take 4c out and : 4c(c-1.5) look at the last two terms: -6c+9 we can take -6 out and : -6(c-1.5) now we have 4c(c-1.5)-6(c-1.5) we can take c-1.5 out and : (c-1.5)(4c-6)

    you can use the formula (-b +/- sqrt(b^2 - 4ac)) / 2a for finding roots ..
