Jun 20, 2017

$2 \left(3 {x}^{2} + 5\right)$

Explanation:

Find a common factor between $6 {x}^{2}$ and $10$

$2 \cdot 3 {x}^{2} = 6 {x}^{2}$
$2 \cdot 5 = 10$

$2$

Put $2$ outside the brackets while dividing inside the brackets by the common factor $2$

$\frac{6 {x}^{2}}{2} = 3 {x}^{2}$

$\frac{10}{2} = 5$

$2 \left(3 {x}^{2} + 5\right)$
