Answer:

#6xy(x^6y^4+8x^4y^3+6)#

Explanation:

To factor the expression we have to find the GCF (Greatest Common Factor) of all the terms, or the greatest factor that all terms have in common.

That term is #6xy#, so you are left with:
#x^6y^4+8x^4y^3+6#

Therefore, the expression is:
#6xy(x^6y^4+8x^4y^3+6)#

Hope this helps!
