#### Explanation:

**In order to determine the factorised form of the given equation we must determine the factors of the #+3x+ and the #-4# coefficients:**

**For the #+3x# value:**

The only factors of 3 (as it is a prime number) are

**For the #-4# coefficient:**

The factors of

If we consider that in the factorised form the sum of two factors of the

As a result, the factorised form of the given equation is:
