#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

Treat this like a quadratic of the form

#a=2#

#b=y#

#c=-y^2#

Now, to factor, we need to find 2 factors of

#ac = 2(-y^2) = -2y^2#

We can use

Our factored form will look like this:

#a(x+"factor 1"/a)(x+"factor 2"/a)#

#2(x+(2y)/2)(x+(-y)/2)#

#2(x+y)(x-y/2)#

#(x+y)(2x-y)#
