Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You look for common factors, example... a only exists in one term so you can't break it out. However, just as tanjung said, find the GCD(4,10) and break it out of the bracket. So GCD here is 2 since both 4 and 10 are divisible by 2 so the answer is: 2(2a+5)
