Apr 7, 2018

see a solution process below;

#### Explanation:

$2 x + 2 y + a x + a y$

Grouping both line of equation in a bracket;

$\left(2 x + 2 y\right) \left(a x + a y\right)$

Factorizing out their commons;

$2 \left(x + y\right) + a \left(x + y\right)$

$\left(x + y\right) \left(2 + a\right) \to \text{Factorized}$
