2h^2-h-3=0

Factor:

(2h - 3)(h + 1) = 0

Use zero factor property twice:

2h - 3 = 0

2h = 3

h = 3/2

h + 1 = 0

h = -1

By inspection the answer has the form

(2h - 3)(h + 1)

I then use FOIL to check:

First terms 2h^2

Outside Terms 2h

Inside Terms -3h

Last terms -3

Collecting terms 2h^2 + 2h - 3h -3

or 2h^2 - h -3
