Answer

$9(x+3)(x-3)$

Work Step by Step

Factoring the $GCF=9$, then the given expression, $ 9x^2-81 $, is \begin{array}{l} 9(x^2-9) .\end{array}Using $a^2-b^2=(a+b)(a-b)$ or the factoring of the difference of 2 squares, then the factored form of the expression, $ 9(x^2-9) $, is \begin{array}{l} 9(x+3)(x-3) .\end{array}
