Answer:

#3(m^4 + 81)#

Explanation:

No #m# can be factored out of both terms, since #m# isn't a factor of #243# (it's a variable). So, since #243# is divisible by #3#, we can factor a #3# out of the entire equation, put the rest in parentheses, and divide each term with #3# as such:

#3(m^4 + 81)#
