This one is easier than the last one, becuase there are only two terms. Can you see numbers that are factors of both terms, 128x^5 and 54x^2y^3?

128 = 2*64, 54 = 2*27 So 2 is a factor of 128 and of 54. This means you could write it as\[2(64x^5+27x^2y^3)\] But I can see more common factors now...(hint: x)
