    umm....its completely factored but i think you mean you want it simplified...? :)

    x^2 = x*x (x+a)^2 = (x+a)(x+a) c(x+a)= c*x + c*a

    So we need to simplify it, combine like terms, then re-factor it

    This is where it gets difficult to factor.

    \[6(x+5)^2-5(x+5)+1\]lets simplify this: expand the \((x+5)\) and distribute the \(5\) to the parenthesis\[6(x^2+10x+25)-5x-25+1\]distribute the \(6\)\[6x^2+60x+150-5x-25+1\]combine like terms:\[6x^2+55x+126\]Now , we can factor it...i would use Quadratic equation since i find ti to be the "safest":\[{-55\pm\sqrt{55^2-4(6)(126)}}\over2(6)\]\[{-55\pm\sqrt{3025-3024}}\over12\]\[{-55\pm\sqrt{1}}\over12\]\[{-55\pm1}\over12\]\[{-56\over12}~~~~or~~~~{-54\over12}\]\[x=-{14\over3}~~~~or~~~~x=-{9\over2}\] so that means that its...\[(x+{14\over3})~~~and~~~(x+{9\over2})\]so to make those 'un-fractioned we'll multiply by the denominators:\[\large(3x+14)(2x+9)\] tada! :D

    I have been proved wrong. @yummydum that was smart to use the quadratic. He found the solutions for x so he knew what the other terms had to be. Then he got rid of the fractions by multiplying by the denominator
