    \(\bf 5y^2({\color{blue}{ y+6 }} )-7({\color{blue}{ y+6 }} )\implies ({\color{blue}{ y+6 }} )[\square ?-\square ?]\)

    well values or objects really numbers just happen to be numeric objects so a variable is also an object so.... common factor is a "factor" that is common to all terms so... what do you think about abc + abd = ? or (a * b * c) + (a * b * d) <--- what's the common factor(s) ?
