5-67.

Factor each expression in parts (a) and (b). Then, in parts (c) and (d), factor and reduce each expression.

1. $bx + ax$

$x\left(b + a\right)$

1. $x + ax$

$x\left(1 + a\right)$

1. $\frac { a x + a } { x ^ { 2 } + 2 x + 1 }$

$\frac{\textit{a}(\textit{x}+1)}{(\textit{x}+1)^{2}}$

1. $\frac { x ^ { 2 } - b ^ { 2 } } { a x + a b }$

$\frac{(\textit{x}+\textit{b})(\textit{x}-\textit{b})}{\textit{a}(\textit{x}+\textit{b})}$
