Answer:

This can't be factorized further, but assuming...

Explanation:

It was given as below;

#36a^2 - b^2#

Then it can be factorized as;

#(6a + b) (6a - b)#

#36a^2 - b^2#

Rewriting as;

#6^2a^2 - b^2#

Using indices rule;

#x^2y^2 = (xy)^2#

Hence;

#(6a)^2 - b^2#

Recall, difference of two squares: #x^2 - y^2 = (x + y) (x - y)#

#(6a + b) (6a - b)#
