How does 3x(4x+5)-5(4x+5) factor out to be (4x+5)(3x-5) ? This may be wrong, because I wrote this answer in my notes, but could some one please explain this to me? Also, do you have any tips on factoring? I understand the concept when I see an example(Usually), but I have a very hard time actually doing it.
