There's an x missing here, I think > 6x^2+54= > after the "5."
I don't know the diamond technique. I can factor by grouping.

Okay. What number times 1 will multiply to 4.
1*? =  4 ? Help me out a little bit, and I can help you finish this. Okay?

no wait wat?? i need to find a number that can multiply by 4?

Directrix

2
Yes, so 1 times 4 = 4 which means
6x^2 +5x 4 = (2x1)( ? +4 )
We're almost there. (2x) times what equals 6 x^2 ?

Let's see if it works:
6x^2 +5x 4 = (2x1)( 3x +4 ) ?? @chubbytots What do you think?
