I need help factoring this out
6a^25a+1
okay so now after revising
(3a1)(2a )
the last part i don't know how to actually get 5 and 1
Factoring is not my strong suit. However, by the term "+1", you know that both of the signs in your parenthesis are going to be the same (both positive or both negative). By the term "5a", it's a pretty good guess they'll be negative, because you can't get a negative number by multiplying two positives. So start like this:
(  )(  )
You started off right with the 3a and the 2a. For the last term (+1), you need two factors that will give you 1. The only choices are 1 and 1 or 1 and 1.
You'll find the solution to be
(3a  1 )(2a  1 )
