Answer:

  1. #x(a+b)#
    2.#18x#

Explanation:

Assuming it's two questions
1. #ax+bx=x(a+b)#. (identify x can be factored out.)
2. #3x*2+6x*6#
first simplify it to:
#(3*2)x+(6*6)x#
#=6x+36x#
then identify 6x can be factored out becoming:
#=6x(1+2)#
simplify it further to:
#=6x(3)#
#=(6*3)x#
#=18x#
