Multiply 4 (the number attached to x^2) and 6 (the number without a variable) together and you get 24. Now you need two numbers that will add together to equal 11 (the number in the middle) and multiply together to equal 24. Make a list of the factors of 24 and see if any of them will add together to get 11. There's 1 and 24; 2 and 12; 3 and 8, and more after that, but 3 and 8 will make 11, so they're your numbers. Now you need to put 8 and 3 in the middle of the problem, so write 4x^2 + 8x + 3x + 6. Then, see if you can factor anything out of the first two terms (4x^2 and 8x). They both have a 4x in them, so when you factor it will look like 4x(x + 2). Now factor the next two. They both have a 3 in them, so when you factor it'll look like 3(x +2). Your problem should now look like 4x(x+2) + 3(x+2). There will always be something that repeats ((x + 2) in this case) and you'll always put it in your final answer only once. Your final answer (factored form) is (4x+3)(x+2)

4x^2 + 8x + 3x + 6 = 4x(x + 2) + 3(x + 2) Easy now?
