    \[w ^{18}-9w ^{9}y ^{5}+14y ^{10}\] Does it look like this?

    Find factors of 14 that add up to -9.

    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. \[w^9 \times w^9 = w^{9 + 9} = w^{18}\]

    so would that be the answer?

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