Simplifying a ratio of polynomials using GCF factoring

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…

Factoring a product of a quadratic trinomial and a monomial

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…
