# Can y= 16x^2-24x+9  be factored? If so what are the factors ?

$y = 16 {\left(x - \frac{3}{4}\right)}^{2}$
$y = 16 {x}^{2} - 24 x + 9$
$y = 16 \left({x}^{2} - \frac{24}{16} x + \frac{9}{16}\right)$
$y = 16 \left({x}^{2} - \frac{3}{2} x + \frac{9}{16}\right)$
$y = 16 \left({\left(x - \frac{3}{4}\right)}^{2} + \frac{9}{16} - \frac{9}{16}\right)$
$y = 16 {\left(x - \frac{3}{4}\right)}^{2}$
