Express 4x2 -12x + 3 in the form of (ax+b)
2 +c where a,b and c are constants and a>0. I don't know how to express it in that form.

They were supposed to have covered this material before assigning homework on it. Are you needing lesson instruction?

When you reply, please provide a corrected statement of the exercise. (No quadratic can be "expressed in the form (ax + b)", because "(ax + b)*(2 + c)" [which is my guess as to what the two strings of characters mean] isn't a quadratic. The original exercise probably actually asked for something more along the lines of "a(x + b)2 + c".) Thank you! ;)
