    Find the greatest factor common to both terms (what divides into both evenly?)

    @gabriel11 , don't you find that insulting to @Rebecca* 's intelligence to not let her answer the question herself?

    It's not the entire answer, if just tells what to factor out. You leave what's leftover after dividing it out.

    Let's try a harder example to make sure you get it. How about: 2a+10ab+14ab ? How would you factor that, @Rebecca* ?
