Go for one more factoring step and you get

2 y (y-2)(y-3)

Try it this way...

2y^3 - 10y^2 + 12y

Switch A&C to make it easier (always acceptable, just remember to keep your signs):

12y - 10y^2 + 2y^3

Factor out a GCF, in this case it's 2y:

2y(6 - 5y + y^2)

Next, factor a trinomial:

2y(2 - 1y)(3 - 1y)

This trinomial is your final answer.

Hope this helps you!
