Factor The GCF From A Polynomial Example 1

Here is an example of how to factor the gcf from a polynomial. ¬†Remember to read the lesson on this topic. Basic steps to follow: 1. First understand that there maybe no gcf to factor- a polynomial could be prime 2. Prime factor each of the terms of the polynomial and determine the greatest common […]


Factoring The GCF from a Polynomial

In algebra when we factor a polynomial we always start with the GCF( greatest common factor). I know you might have some fancy algebra factoring skills but don’t apply any of them in a factoring problem until you find the GCF. ¬†Sometimes a polynomial will not have a gcf so in those cases use your […]
