Look at the video and the steps below:

Here are the basic steps which are illustrated on the video:
1.  Transform Trinomial into a Quadnomial 
      a.  Using X-Factor Method
      b.  Middle term goes in upper section
      c.  1st term × 3rd term goes in lower section
      d.  Find the two numbers that work
