    If you factor (p+2) out of the equation, this leaves (3b-7), so the final answer is (p+2)(3b-7)

    Answer:

    You can say (p+2)(3b-7) or (3b-7)(p+2). There are some other ways you can say it to. You can use the commutative property on the addition part as well.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    You have two terms

    3b(p+2) and -7(p+2).

    Looking at these two terms, they are in factored form. Do you see they share a common factor?  They share the common factor (p+2).

    So if we wanted to factor 3b(p+2)-7(p+2), we would factor out the (p+2) giving us (p+2)(3b-7).
