To factor completely (5a^2 + b), there isn't a simple way to factor it further without additional information or specific instructions. If you're looking to factor it over the real numbers, and assuming (a) and (b) are real numbers, then (5a^2 + b) is already in its simplest factored form. However, if (a) and (b) are variables or if you have more context or constraints, additional factoring might be possible.
