    Answer:

    2.5(x + 2y – 1).

    Step-by-step explanation:

    2.5x + ( 5y) -2.5

    2.5x + 5y – 2.5  (we can just remove the parentheses without changing the value of the expression)

    Each coefficient is divisible by 2.5 so by the distributive law:

    2.5x + 5y – 2.5

    = 2.5(x + 2y – 1).
