#### Answer:

Divide out the highest common factor from the terms.

#### Explanation:

This process would be the same as 'factorise'.

What factor do all of the terms contain?

That number would have been in front of a bracket and have been multiplied by all the terms in the bracket.

If you now apply the distributive property you will end up with the expression you started with.
