Solution:

(i) Area : 25a^{2}–35a+12

Using the splitting the middle term method,

We have to find a number whose sum = -35 and product =25×12=300

We get -15 and -20 as the numbers [-15+-20=-35 and -15×-20=300]

25a^{2}–35a+12 = 25a^{2}–15a−20a+12

= 5a(5a–3)–4(5a–3)

= (5a–4)(5a–3)

(ii) Area : 35y^{2}+13y–12

Using the splitting the middle term method,

We have to find a number whose sum = 13 and product = 35×-12 = 420

We get -15 and 28 as the numbers [-15+28 = 13 and -15×28=420]

35y^{2}+13y–12 = 35y^{2}–15y+28y–12

12ky^{2}+8ky–20k can be written as 4k(3y^{2}+2y–5) by taking 4k out of both the terms.

12ky^{2}+8ky–20k = 4k(3y^{2}+2y–5)[Here, 3y^{2}+2y–5 can be written as 3y^{2}+5y–3y–5 using splitting the middle term method.]

= 4k(3y^{2}+5y–3y–5)

= 4k[y(3y+5)–1(3y+5)]

Possible expression for length = 4k

Possible expression for breadth = (3y +5)

Possible expression for height = (y -1)
