 Click here to see ALL problems on Polynomials-and-rational-expressions Question 40855: = = = To start this type of problem find the product of the coefficient (here -3) of and the constant term (here 8). Consider the positive value of the product (). Try to express the coefficient of 's' i.e. -10 as a sum of two numbers whose product is, here, 24. Then you would be able to find some expressions common and will be able to factorize.Found 2 solutions by longjonsilver, psbhowmick:Answer by longjonsilver(2297)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!you will have to learn the "binomial" factoring technique... look at the website's Lessons. there must be plenty of help there: anyway, the answer is: (3s-4)(s-2) Multiply these brackets out and you will get the polynomial in the question.
