How do you factor the greatest common Monomial factor?
Then, how do you factor out the greatest common factor?
To factor the GCF out of a polynomial, we do the following:
- Find the GCF of all the terms in the polynomial.
- Express each term as a product of the GCF and another factor.
- Use the distributive property to factor out the GCF.
One may also ask, how do I solve GCMF? To find the GCF of two numbers:
- List the prime factors of each number.
- Multiply those factors both numbers have in common. If there are no common prime factors, the GCF is 1.
Also Know, what are the examples of common Monomial factor?
When factoring a polynomial, the goal is that the GCF of all the terms is one factor. In 6x2 + 12x, 6x is the greatest common factor, so 6x2 + 12x = 6x(x + 2). Monomials such as 6x, and polynomials such as x + 2 that cannot be factored into polynomials of a lower degree, are called prime polynomials.
What is the GCF of 28 48 and 64?
Greatest common factor (GCF) of 28 and 48 is 4.
