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).
