Step 1
We have to factorize the polynomial:
6ab-15b+2a-5
Factorization is the process of taking common terms from the expression.
So factorizing the given polynomial,
6ab-15b+2a-5=3b(2a-5)+1(2a-5)
Step 2
Now taking (2a-5) common,
3b(2a-5)+1(2a-5)=(2a-5)(3b+1)
Hence, factorized form of the polynomial is (2a-5)(3b+1).
