(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

factorize fully:

4x^2 - 12x - 14

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Quadratic equation:

(-(-12)+ sqrt(12^2 - (4 * 4 * -14))/ 2 * 4

(12 + sqrt(144 + 224))/8

in the end it became a surd

(12+ sqrt(368))/8

Could someone tell me how to factorize this?

or is that as far as it will go?
