    \(x^{3}y-4xy\) <---- this is the thing I have to factor

    Well, what is common to both terms?

    based from what phi told me in my previous question, I'm assuming that it would be acceptable to do this: \(xy(x^{2}-4)\)

    and @anitasonia98 to answer your question, both terms have x and y in common

    right ^_^ so once i have \(xy(x^{2}-4)\), that turns into xy(x-2)(x+2)

    I believe that xy(x-2)(x+2) is my final form. Am I correct?
