First:  factor out the common factor of x2 - 2x + 1:

y2(x2 - 2x + 1) + 11y(x2 - 2x + 1) + 30(x2 - 2x + 1)

=  (x2 - 2x + 1)[ y2 + 11y + 30 ]

Factor  x2 - 2x + 1  to get  (x - 1)(x - 1)  or  (x - 1)2

and factor  y2 + 11y + 30  to get  (y + 6)(y + 5)

Substitute these into the expression above to get:

=  (x - 1)2(Y + 6)(y + 5y)
