#3a(11p - 5m) -5b(13t-5m)#
It does not seem to factor further?


There are 4 terms and there is no common factor. Group the terms in pairs to have a common factor in each- make sure there is a + sign between the pairs.

#( 33ap - 15am) + (- 65bt + 25mb)#

#3a(11p - 5m) -5b(13t-5m)#

This does not factor further as there is no common bracket.
