### Explanation of Solution

Given information:

(3x+2)2=10

Formula used:

Splitting the middle term:- in this method, middle term is splitted in such a way that the product of its part is equal to the product of constant and first terms coefficient.

Calculation:

(3x+2)2=109x2+4+2(3x)(2)=109x2+4+12x=109x2+4+12x10=0

9x2+12x6=03x2+4x2=0

This equation cannot be solved by factoring
