(4x - 3)(2x + 3)

just like factoring any other trinomial.

(10x + 1)(x + 10)

That doesn't factor neatly. Applying the quadratic formula, we find two real solutions: (-615 plus or minus 15 times the square root of 3281) divided by 2. x = 122.10010474859058 x = -737.10010474859058

It's not enough to copy the question off the test. If you don't tell us what the trinomial is, we can't factor it for you.
