How do you factor 4x(squared)+12x+40?

Thanks!

4x2+12x+40=
4(x2+3x+10)

Is there any way to get it like ( ) *( )?

I don't think the term within the parentheses can be factored. The only factors of 10 are 10*1 and 5*2 and neither of those will add to 3.

    I'm not sure how to factor 3x^3-12x^2+3x. I tried separatring the 3x so that 3x(x+1)(x-4, but I got -3x^3+-12x^2-3x^2+12x. Can you show me where I went wrong and how to properly factor this? Is there a general rule or tip for this

    solve this please....help me....12x(squared)+7x-10 Do you wish to factor this trinomial? If so, the factors are: (4x + 5)(3x - 2) You can use the FOIL method to check. If this is supposed to be an equation: 12x^2 + 7x - 10 = 0

    1/3 - 5/6 = 1/X SOLVE 1/3 - 5/6 = 1/X Let's remove the denominators by multiplying by 12X 12X*(1/3) - 12X*(5/6) = 12X*(1/X) Clear the fractions. 4X - 10X = 12 -6X=12 multipy by -1 6X=-12 Divide both sides by 6 6X/6 = -12/6 X = -2
