USE THE AC METHOD FACTORING 9+^2+5+4 CAN SOME ONE SHOW ME THE STEP TO SOLVING THIS PROBLEM

9x^2 + 5x  4
the AC method
Multiply the 9 times 4
You have 36
think of factors that will multiple to equal 36 but add to equal the middle number 5.
36 times 1 no
9 times 4 yes
Sometimes it takes awhile to find the right numbers.
Once you do, you write them and 4x + 9x
You replace the middle term with them.
9x^2 4x + 9x  4
Next, you factor by grouping
(9x^2 4x) + (9x  4)
Take out the common factor in each group.
x(9x4) + 1(9x4)
see the (9x4)... you write that down once and get your other factor from what is left over (x+1)
FINAL ANSWER: (9x4)(x+1)
Multiply those factors to check to be sure you are correct.
