Megan factored the expression (12x^2+52x35) as (2x+5)(6x7) but when Jacob applied FOIL principle and multiplied out (2x+5)(6x7) he got (12x^2+44x35),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
