Greatest Common Factor
Find the greatest common factor of the coefficients.
Find the GCF of each variable by take the one with the smallest exponent. Note: All the terms in the polynomial must have a variable in order to be apart of the GCF.
Put all the GCF's together using multiplication in front of a set of parenthesis.
Divide the original polynomial by the GCF to get what should be inside the parenthesis.
Multiply to check. You should get the original back.
