Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The Greatest Common Factor (GCF) of some numbers, is the largest number that divides evenly into all of the numbers. Like, the GCF of 10,15, and 25 is 5. so for 5 and 3 your The Greatest Common Factor (GCF) of the numbers 5,3 is 1 because 1 is the greatest number that divides evenly into all of them.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes one of them states.. (2a+ab)+(2c+bc)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First Question: Does your polynomial have a GCF? Always factor out the GCF first (when there is one)!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0They have already grouped it so there is a common factor within each grouping

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(2a+ab)+(2c+bc) 2a+ab+(2c+bc) (b+2)(c+a)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the two bottom answers must match ^^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0WHat do you mean the two bottom answers must match? (b+2)(c+a) would be the final answer I think

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0like the answer would be (the final would be ) (1r+4)(2b8)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Here is the problem as you stated: (2a+ab)+(2c+bc) Look closely at the first part in paren. The 2a+ab.........What do you see that is common to both terms?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, remove the a and express it like this a(2+b). Do you agree that is the same thing?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Good now the second part, what do you see that is common to both terms in the second set of paren namely the (2c+bc)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Big_rod when you return...... that can be factored also, extracting the c getting c(2+b) now write the equation like this using the revised a(2+b)+c(2+b) Now hat do you see that is common to both terms? The (2+b) is common, extract that and get the final answer , the same one that mmbuckroos got (2+b)(a+c)
