(A) \((2^2)(3^3)[(2)(3)(7) + (3^2)(5) + (2^2)(11)]\)

(B) \((2^2)(3^4)[7 + (3)(5) + 11]\)

(C) \((2)(3)[7 + 5 + 11]\)

(D) \((2)(3^3)[(2)(3)(7) + (3^2)(5) + (2^2)(11)]\)

(E) \((2)(3^4)[7 + (2)(3)(5) + 11]\)


\((2^3)(3^4)(7) + (2^2)(3^5)(5) + (2^4)(3^3)(11)\) ..... if we take out the common term \((2^2)(3^3)\) from each expression we get A: \((2^2)(3^3)[(2)(3)(7) + (3^2)(5) + (2^2)(11)]\) ..... Ans A

(B) \((2^2)(3^4)[7 + (3)(5) + 11]\)

(E) \((2)(3^4)[7 + (2)(3)(5) + 11]\)


The factors that are common to all three terms are 2^2 and 3^3. Factoring them out, we have:

(2^2)(3^3)[2 x 3 x 7 + 3^2 x 5 + 2^2 x 11]

Answer: A
