The problem is 3x^2 - 26 + 35

(We have to factor it!)

So, I did the problem, but I'm not sure how to write the final answer. This is what my problem looks like so far:

3x^2 - 26 + 35

(3x^2-21x)-(5x+35)

3x(x-7)-5(x+7)

and this is where I have the problem. I know I need to put (3x-5) but, how do I write the other part? Do I put (x-7) or (x+7) ??

THANK YOU!
