Standard form is ax

^{2}+ bx + c = 0. You want to multiply out the two parentheses. Some people call that FOIL.(4x + 2)(2x - 3) original problem

4x(2x - 3) + 2(2x-3) distribution

4x

^{2}-12x + 4x -6 more distribution4x

^{2}-8x - 6 combine like termsc = -6 c is the term with no variable

The standard from is ax^2 + bx + c, where "c" is a free term. If you factor the quadratic expression then the free term equals to the product of free terms in binomials: - 2 and (-3). Thus, your answer is c= - 6.
