how do i factor 8m^2-6mn-9n^2

• algebra -

8x^2 - 6x - 9 can you see how I factored it to
(4x+3)(2x-3) ?

• algebra -

8x^2 - 6x - 9
For this problem we have to multiply the first and the last term here the first term is 8 and the last term is -9 if we multiplied this two we will get -72 then we have to split this number in to two parts and the multiplication value of splitted term must be equal to -72 and the simplification value must be equal to the midlle term that is -6 .So we can split 72 as (-12)*6
8x^2-6x-9 = (2x-3)(4x+3)

I'm trying to solve x^3-3x^2-x+3 is less than zero. Except, I'm not sure how to factor it. I tried splitting it so that 3 would be a factor for 3x^2 and 3, so the result was 3(-x^2+1), and x^2 was a factor for x^3 and -3x^2, resulting …
