# How do you factor  6x^2+6x^3 ?

Mar 10, 2018

$6 {x}^{2} + 6 {x}^{3} = 5 {x}^{2} \left(1 + x\right)$

#### Explanation:

We can bring out a $6$ out of both terms to begin with:

$6 {x}^{2} + 6 {x}^{3} = 6 \left({x}^{2} + {x}^{3}\right)$

Now we notice that we can also bring out an ${x}^{2}$:

$6 \left({x}^{2} + {x}^{3}\right) = 6 {x}^{2} \left(1 + x\right)$

which is the most factoring we can do.
