2(13y + 5)(y - 7)

#### Explanation:

Factor f(y) by using new AC Method (Socratic Search).

Converted trinomial:

Proceeding: Find the factor numbers of f'(x), then, divide them by

a = 13.

Find 2 numbers, that have opposite signs ac < 0, knowing the sum (b = - 86) and the product (ac = - 455). They are 5 and - 91

The factor numbers of f(y) are:

Factored form of F(y):
