its just confusing

- triciaal

i can help you with factoring

- anonymous

i can factor, but the problem is confusing because i have to get something that multiplies to -2 and something that gives me -5x and then 3x^2

a = 3
b = -5
c = -2

- triciaal

if you calm down I can walk you through then answer any questions or

- anonymous

okay :)

- triciaal

identify a, b and c

- anonymous

a = 3 b = -5 and c = -2 right?

- triciaal

what is a* c

- anonymous

-6

- triciaal

what are the factors af a*c that add up to b and pay attention to the signs

- anonymous

-6 + 1

- triciaal

now rewrite the original but split b into its components

- triciaal

separate into 2 groups that will have common factors and factor each of the 2 groups

- triciaal

the 2 groups have a common factor use the distributive property and rewrite
