Answer:

#6(3y + 5)#

Explanation:

#6 + 24 = 30#

#6 + 18y + 24# can therefore be simplified to #18y + 30#.

the highest common factor between #18# and #30# is #6#.

#18 div 6 = 3#
#30 div 6 = 5#

#18y div 6 = 3y#
#30 div 6 = 5#

this means that #18y + 30# can be simplified to #6 * (3y + 5)#, or #6(3y+5)#.
