In this lesson, we learn how to factor out the greatest common factor (GCF) for more complicated problems. By finding the common factor in each term and pulling it out to the front, we can write the polynomial in factored form. The lesson also covers how to adjust the terms to make them opposites, allowing us to factor out the GCF. The examples provided can be tricky, but with practice, factoring out the GCF can become much easier.
This videos covers factoring out the GCF for more complicated problems.
