Do you see any factors that you can bring out front? Factors that are common to 2y^4, 6y^3 and 8y^2 ?

I agree, 2y can be brought out. What does it look like factored with 2y in the front ?

Factoring out \(2y\) leaves you with \((2y)(y^33y^24y)\).
It can still be factored more.

okay how do you factor further?

Perhaps another y can be factored? This would leave 2y^2 in the front
