# How do you factor 28p + 8q +20r?

May 5, 2018

$2 \left(14 p + 4 q + 10 r\right)$

#### Explanation:

since the variables are all different, you cannot take any out to simplify, but since all terms have a common factor of 2, you are able to take that out

$2 \left(14 p + 4 q + 10 r\right)$

color(darkorange)(=4(7p+2q+5r)

#### Explanation:

That's all that u can do, since all the variables are different.
