expand the first term and the second term

2(9x^2-12x+4)-3x^2-3x + 4

18x^2-24x+8-3x^2-3x+4

gather terms

15x^2-27x+12

(3x-3)(5x-4)

check that.

2 (3 x - 2)^2 - 3 x^2 -3 x + 4

2 (9x^2 - 12 x +4) - 3 x^2 -3x + 4

18 x^2 - 24 x + 8 - 3x^2 -3x + 4

15 x^2 -27 x + 12

or

3(5 x^2 - 9 x + 4)

Oh, you can factor more

3(5 x^2 - 9 x + 4)

3 (5x-4)(x-1)
