12x- 4x + 1 = 0 

 

From what my teacher has taught us, we multiply the 12 and 1 to get 12 and then use its factors to get to -4 but the only factors I can find are -6 and 2, which when multiplied equal -12. Any help is appreciated!!

There must be a typo here.  This polynomial can't be factored over the reals.
