$\left(4 x + 2\right) \left(x + 3\right) = 4 {x}^{2} + 12 x + 2 x + 6 = 4 {x}^{2} + 14 x + 6$

#### Explanation:

$\left(4 x + 2\right) \left(x + 3\right) = 4 {x}^{2} + 12 x + 2 x + 6 = 4 {x}^{2} + 14 x + 6$

As the 3 terms were being summed together (only + appears), you know that there will be a + in the middle of both brackets when you come to factorise.
