Answer:

This is only one term, so the only way we can factor is to write the product of the prime factors.

# (2^2 * 3v^24)/(17u^30)#

Explanation:

The fraction has to be simplified first:

#(-36u^-10v^13)/(-51u^20v^-11)#

#= (12v^13v^11)/(17u^20u^10)#

#=(12v^24)/(17u^30)#

#= (2^2 * 3v^24)/(17u^30)#
