Step 1
We have to find the factor of polynomial:
xy+11x−5y−55
Factorization is the process of taking common from various terms and that common terms are known as factor of that expression.
We can see that x is common in xy and 11x
and −5 is common in −5y and −55
since, 55=11 xx 5
Step 2
Finding factor of the polynomial,
xy+11x−5y−55=x(y+11)−5(y+11)
Here y+11 is common,
xy+11x−5y−55=x(y+11)−5(y+11)
=(y+11)(x−5)
Hence, factorization of the given polynomial is (y+11)(x−5) and factors are y+11 and x−5.
