#### Answer

$(y-6)(x+2)$

#### Work Step by Step

Regroup the terms to obtain:
$=(xy-6x)+(2y-12)$
Factor out the greatest common factor of each group to obtain:
$=x(y-6) + 2(y-6)$
The $GCF$ for the two terms is a binomial, $(y-6)$. Even though it is a binomial, we can factor it out just like we would factor out a number or a variable. Thus, we factor out the binomial to obtain:
$=(y-6)(x+2)$
