Answer:

#5(7x^3-5b^4)#

Explanation:

Let's start by distributing the #5# to both terms in the parenthesis. Doing this, we get

#5x^3+30x^3-25b^4#

We can simplify the #x^3# terms to get

#35x^3-25b^4#

We can factor out a #5# from both terms. Here we are essentially dividing, and we get

#5(7x^3-5b^4)#

as our final answer

Hope this helps!
