Ok. Even though it looks a lot different, it is still a factorable trinomial. \[w ^{18}9w ^{9}y ^{5}+14y ^{10} \implies (w^9  2y^5)(w^9  7y^5)\]

Remember. THese are exponents. \[w^9 \times w^9 = w^{9 + 9} = w^{18}\]

\[w ^{18}9w ^{9}y ^{5}+14y ^{10} \implies (w^9  2y^5)(w^9  7y^5)\] The one on the right is the answer.
