Answer:

#-1(b^2+a^b+24)#

Explanation:

The only factor that the three terms share is #-1#, and there isn't a good way to separate them so that it produces two binomials which multiply together to produce #-b^2-a^b-24#. Therefore, the only factoring that can be done is to pull the #-1# factor out of all 3 terms like this:

#-b^2 - a^b - 24#

#(-1)(b^2) + (-1)(a^b) + (-1)(24)#

#-1(b^2+a^b+24)#
