## Main Question or Discussion Point

does anyone have a problem with the factoring function on the TI 89? i tried to factor (by using f2 factoring function)a simple problem like 12x^2+5xy-3y^2 the answer should be (4x+3y)(3x-y) but on my calculator i just get a rearranged order of 12x^2-3y^2+5xy......does anyone know how to fix this problem? i know its not a hard problem just i had to do factoring in my head.
