## Sure! To simplify the expression 12x^2y^3, you can factor out the common factors of the variables x and y.

First, let's look at the numeric coefficient, which is 12. Since there are no other common factors besides 1, we keep 12 as it is.

Now let's focus on the variables. We have x^2 and y^3. To simplify x^2, we can break it down into x * x. Similarly, y^3 can be written as y * y * y.

Combining everything, we have:

12x^2y^3 = 12 * x * x * y * y * y

This is the simplified form of the expression.
