By the trial&error method, for 6x^2 - 11x + 4,

(6x + ?)(x +.... you know this one is no good.

(6x - ?)(x - ?)

(2x - ?)(3x - ?)

You get a product of 4 from any of these:

4=4*1=2*2

Are you saying that the factorization is (6x + 2)(x -2)? Whether you are or aren't, these aren't the factors of 6x^2 -11x + 4.## Homework Statement

Try the AC method

6x^2-11x+4 coef for A=6; coef for c=4 product 6(4)=24;

find facors of 24 which can make 11 (3 and 8)
