# How do you factor 2000 w^3 + 2y^3?

Jun 17, 2018

$2 \left(1000 {w}^{3} + {y}^{3}\right)$

#### Explanation:

To factor this, we have to find the GCF, or greatest common factor. The greatest common factor between $2000 {w}^{3}$ and $2 {y}^{3}$ is $2$.

Therefore, we factor or "take out" a $2$ and multiply whatever is left:
$2 \left(1000 {w}^{3} + {y}^{3}\right)$

Hope this helps!
