    You factor out the common factor, in this case it is 5y^2

    which leaves

    5y^2(x^2-7x+12)

    now you factor the square:

    (x-4)(x-3)

    bring the 5y^2 back and get

    5y^2(x-4)(x-3)

    Factor out 5y^2, and what's left will be an easy quadratic in x that you can factor by, for example, the FOIL method.

    5x^2y^2 - 35xy^2 + 60y^2

    =5y^2 * (x^2 - 7x + 12)

    =5y^2 * (x - 4)*(x - 3)
