### Factoring Using GCF’s

Objectives: Find the greatest common factors of a set of numbers or monomials

36

• It’s the process of breaking down a large number into a series of small numbers that are all multiplied together

/ \

4 x 9

• Use the factor tree solution until all your multiplied numbers are prime

When you factor you’ll always get to the same result if you factor completely although you may start differently.

When you hit a prime,

circle it

• The GCF is the largest number that can go into 2 or more numbers

Break each number down to its prime

Circle the biggest numbers that are common to both, when multiplied they will equal the GCF.

• Objectives: Use the GCF and the Distributive property to factor polynomials

STEPS:

• Break all polynomials down to prime form.

3x2y + 12xy

• ID common coefficients and variables.

• Put back together. Common coefficients and variables will be on the outsides of the brackets.

3x2y + 12xy

• Break all polynomials down to prime form.

3•x•x•y

2•3•2•x•y

• ID common coefficients and variables.

(x+4)

• Put back together. Common coefficients and variables will be on the outsides of the brackets.

• Objectives: Factor GCF’s from trinomials in the form X2+bx+c
