Answer:

#y(2y+5)#

Explanation:

Gather all the similar terms:
#y^2 + y^2 = 2y^2#
#11y-6y = 5y#
Therefore, all together it is written as:
#2y^2+5y#
Now we can factorise:
What factors are in common between #2y^2# and #5y#?
It's #y# !
So let's bring that outside the brackets:
#y(2y+5)#
That's it.

You can't derive any value from this as it is an expression and not equal to any number...
