 Question 181515This question is from textbook : I am trying to factor this problem, 12x^2-2x-30 would like to use a solver on the site, but not sure which one to use or how to enter the problem. Thanks.This question is from textbook Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15660)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!factor this problem, 12x^2 - 2x - 30 : there is another way to factor it, think it out Simplify, divide by 2, and you have 6x^2 - x - 15 : Start with: (3x __) (2x __) ; 15 does not have many factors, 5 & 3 are good ones to try how about (3x 5) (2x 3) ; Apply the signs that will give you the middle term (3x - 5)(2x + 3) : To check this out FOIL and you have 6x^2 - 10x + 9x - 15 which is 6x^2 - x - 15 Multiply that by 2 and you have the original expression
