    Im not too good at math

    The problem is

    Factor

    36s^2+39s-105


    I will be eternally grateful to whoever helps me with this. I have been working on this problem for like an hour straight.

    I find GCF and get it down to

    3(12s^2 + 13s - 35)

    But I CANNOT factor (12s^2 + 13s -35) for the life of me


    PLEASE HELP!

    Rep given

    yo i got but not 100 percent sure
    (4s-5)(3s+7)
    so I think the answer would be 4s-5=0 which would be 4s divided by 5 which would be 5/4
    3s+7+0 which would be 3s divided by -7 which would -7/3

    check it im drunk and iono for sure ive taken this bs crap a while back
