Answer:

#(x+2)(x+3)#

Explanation:

An expression such as #5x +15# can be factored by taking out the common factor of #5#.

#color(blue)(5)x+ color(blue)(5) xx 3#

#=color(blue)(5)(x+3)#

In the same way the expression can be factored by taking out the common bracket #(x+2)#

#x(color(blue)(x+2)) +3(color(blue)(x+2))#

#=color(blue)((x+2))(x+3)#
