\(\displaystyle{6}{x}^{{{2}}}-{5}{x}+{1}\)
\(\displaystyle{a}={b}={c}=\)
1. List the factors of ac
2. Which of those factors add up to b?
3. Replace b with those factors. You should have 4 terms in your polynomial now.
4. Group the first 2 terms and group the last 2 terms.
5 Factor out the GCF's of both groups, you shoild have 2 factors that are twins.
6. Group the twins together and group the GCF's together.

\(\displaystyle{6}{x}^{{{2}}}-{5}{x}+{1}\)
\(\displaystyle{a}={6}{b}=-{5}{c}={1}\)
1. \(\displaystyle{a}{c}={6}={2}\times{3}\times{1}.\)
2. \(\displaystyle-{2}\pm{3}=-{5}={b}\)
3. \(\displaystyle{6}{x}^{{{2}}}-{5}{x}+{1}={6}{x}^{{{2}}}-{2}{x}-{3}{x}+{1}\)
4. \(\displaystyle{6}\cdot{2}{x}{\left({3}{x}-{1}\right)}-{1}{\left({3}{x}-{1}\right)}{G}{C}{F}={\left({3}{x}-{1}\right)}\)
5. \(\displaystyle{\left({2}{x}-{1}\right)}{\left({3}{x}-{1}\right)}\)
