Megan factored the expression (-12x^2+52x-35) as (-2x+5)(6x-7) but when Jacob applied FOIL principle and multiplied out (2x+5)(6x-7) he got (-12x^2+44x-35),thus megan's solution does not appear to check please help megan to understand better.Explain your reasoning and correctly factor the original expression if possible If the expression is a prime please state so
