Answer:

#(2x-1)(2x^2+3)#

Explanation:

First, we group the terms like this: #(4x^3-2x^2)+(6x-3)#. We can factor these groups individually: #2x^2(2x-1)+3(2x-1)#.

Notice that there is a common factor: #(2x-1)#. We can factor this out again: #(2x-1)(2x^2+3)#. Now, we can't really factor this further. So, our answer is #(2x-1)(2x^2+3)#.
