  • jagr2713
dont forget the -3 b.c i said -12 ok goo so its 4 and -3 so we rewrite 1 X x as the sum of 4x and -3x so we get \[2x ^{2}+4x-3x-6\]

okay
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
Ok what do we do next?
anonymous
  • anonymous
we have to see what answer choice is equal to that?
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
Nope we have to factor out common terms in the first two terms, then in the last two terms \[2x(x+2)-3(x+2)\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh okay
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
So next we factor out the common term x+2 so we get ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
2x
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
nope so if we factor out a common term which is x+2 so we get (2x-3) and ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh so you add the three to the equation!

@jagr2713
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
Yep so same for the other side but the 2x is already with the 3 so all we have left is?
anonymous
  • anonymous
is x and 2
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
So the answer is?
anonymous
  • anonymous
should it be (x+2) or (-)
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
its plus b.c the equation is plus 2x-3 is - b.c we have -3
anonymous
  • anonymous
so D?
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
Correct :D
jagr2713
  • jagr2713
