how would i solve this problem?? it says factor the polynomial completely:

2xy-3y-40x+60



I studied polynomials, but I don't know what it means to factor them.

Do you have a definition in your textbook or notes or something?

B-cuz then I'll be able to help you.

Factoring a polynomial is the opposite process of multiplying polynomials. Recall that when you factor a number, you are looking for prime factors that multiply together to give the number.

geez, I have no clue...

well, I have some ideas, but I'd hate to set you on the wrong track...

hopefully someone else can help you b-cuz I can't figure it out, I've never learned how to factor polynomials before

sorry
