Hmm, notice that the coefficients are all `even numbers`. So they're all divisible by 2, ya?

6 and 9 divisible by 3

So then,\[\large\rm 2x+12+18y=2\left(x+6+9y\right)\]I'm not sure how far they want us to factor this :3 Yah let's do that I suppose, take the 3 out of the 6 and 9.

I actually think thats how they want it but Im just having a hard time with the "laws"
UnicornPoopCookies

Okay so from there we factor further right like to lowest terms

The distributive law looks like this:\[\large\rm a(b+c)=ab+ac\]I guess what we're doing in this problem is apply the distributive law `in reverse`.

Yah let's try that. We'll take a 3 out of each of these blue terms. \[\large\rm 2\left(x+\color{royalblue}{6+9y}\right)=2\left(x+\color{royalblue}{3(2+3y)}\right)\]I divided 3 out of 6 to be left with a 2, and took a 3 out of 9 to be left with 3. ya?
