How do you factor #3xy^2 - 12x#?
See a solution process below:
First, we can find the Greatest Common Factor of each term:
The common factors are:
For a GCF of:
We can rewrite the express and then factor it as:
We are given:
First, take out the greatest common factor of both numbers, that is
So, we get
We can now let
From here, we cannot simplify this further, and therefore this is the final answer.
