*In Exercises 17 to 22, factor completely.*

To determine

To factor completely:

Explanation

Factorizing a polynomial is to express the polynomial as a product of simpler expressions such that each of the simpler expressions divides the polynomial completely and also the product of all the simpler expressions gives the polynomial.

**Calculation:**

Given,

First look for a common factor

Terms | Prime factors |

Thus, the

The given expression can be expressed as

Here, â€˜aâ€™ is distributed over the expression

By the reverse of distributive property of multiplication,

Now, factor the expression
