This shows the results of factoring the GCF from the numerator and denominator of an algebraic fraction and then reducing using the division of identical factors resulting in replacing them with 1…


An example where the terms are expanded into their separate factors so that the common factor can be identified and extracted and the remaining factors are left to stay inside parentheses.


Expands each monomial as a list of all of its prime factors, then showing those that both lists have in common to develope the GCF.


A short example of factoring each of two terms so we can see clearly what the common factors are.


Demonstrates how to reduce a complex fraction when the technique of factoring a greatest common factor (GCF) is needed.


A two step process is shown here. First, as always, look for a greatest common factor (GCF) and remove it from all terms. Then second, the resulting quadratic expresssion can then be factored into…


A twostep process involving first removing the greatest common factor from both terms, then factoring the resulting difference of squares.
