Everything is squared... The 16, the x, and the 9. So to completely factor it, you would have to do the square root... I know the answer if you need it, but thought you might like to give it a try...

Put it in a standard form, then it will be easy to see how to factor it. As onecuteladybug says, everything is squared, so there is a major hint.
