Answer:

#(3x+5)(2x-3)#

Explanation:

#6x^2 - 9x +10x - 15#

by grouping and taking the common factor

rearrange:

#color(red)(6x^2 +10x) color(blue)(- 9x - 15)#

from the red terms take #2x# common factor
and the blue terms take #-3# common factor

#color(red)(2x)(3x+5)color(blue)(-3)(3x+5)#

now you can take #(3x+5)# as a common factor from both terms

#(3x+5)(2x-3)#
