Answer:

See explanation

Question has been corrected

Step-by-step explanation:

Given:

3x² + 11x + 30

To factorise, multiply the coefficient of x² by 30

= 3 * 30

= 90

Find two numbers that have a product of 90 and a sum of 11

** There are no such two numbers, therefore the question can’t be solved using factorization

Correcting the error in the question:

x² + 11x + 30

To factorise, multiply the coefficient of x² by 30

= 1 * 30

= 30

Find two numbers that have a product of 30 and a sum of 11

6 and 5

6 + 5 = 11

6 * 5 = 30

x² + 11x + 30

= x² + 6x + 5x + 30

= x(x + 6) + 5(x + 6)

= (x + 6) (x + 5)
