# How do you rewrite 6 + 18y + 24 as a product?

May 28, 2018

$6 \left(3 y + 5\right)$

#### Explanation:

$6 + 24 = 30$

$6 + 18 y + 24$ can therefore be simplified to $18 y + 30$.

the highest common factor between $18$ and $30$ is $6$.

$18 \div 6 = 3$
$30 \div 6 = 5$

$18 y \div 6 = 3 y$
$30 \div 6 = 5$

this means that $18 y + 30$ can be simplified to $6 \cdot \left(3 y + 5\right)$, or $6 \left(3 y + 5\right)$.
