Work Step by Step
The leading coefficient of the given trinomial is 1. Thus, it can be factored by looking for the factors of the numerical coefficient of the third term ($-60$) whose sum is equal to the numerical coefficient of the middle term ($17$). Note that $-60=20(-3)$ and $20+(-3)=17$. Thus, the given trinomial can be factored as $(x+20y)(x-3y)$. Therefore the missing term of the second factor is $-3y$.
