Remember what I showed you earlier? I went through all of the factors, starting with one, until I found the right one? You have to find the GCF the same way. What is the lowest factor that they share that isn't 1?

Meaning what is the lowest number by which both 6x and 4x can be divided?
DangerousJesse
  • DangerousJesse
Yes, and is that also the highest?

Step 1) Factor 6x^2 into 2*3*x*x Step 2) Factor 4x into 2*2*x Notice how we have \(\Large \color{red}{2}\) and \(\Large \color{blue}{x}\) in common \[\Large 6x^2 = \color{red}{2}*3*x*\color{blue}{x}\] \[\Large 4x = \color{red}{2}*2*\color{blue}{x}\] multiply out \(\Large \color{red}{2}\) and \(\Large \color{blue}{x}\) to get 2*x = 2x So the GCF of 6x^2 and 4x is 2x

I'm embarrassed as heck. I'm too tired to brain this properly.. I'm so sorry haha.

then as @DangerousJesse is saying, we can divide each term by 2x 6x^2 divided by 2x = \(\Large \color{red}{3x}\) 4x divided by 2x = \(\Large \color{blue}{2}\) so that's why \[\Large 6x^2 + 4x = 2x(\color{red}{3x}+\color{blue}{2})\]

you can distribute to check 2x*(3x+2) = 2x*3x + 2x*2 = 6x^2 + 4x
