Homework Help: Factoring Trinomials

Posted by -Untamed- on Monday, October 31, 2011 at 6:40pm.

Working on how to factor trinomials, and the method that works best for me is the criss cross method, so Ive sticked with it. But Ive been stuck on one question for the past few minutes, and don't know what I've been doing wrong.

4x^2+23x+15

2x and 2x times to make a 4x. 5 and 3 times to make 15. And Im left with 10x and 6x, and they are supposed to add to make a 23x. But they are not:\ Ive even tried flipping them, but there's no point because the numbers are the same.
