Factoring a Polynomial Whose GCF is a Binomial
You have already seen how to factor a polynomial when the GCF of the terms is a monomial.In this example, we factor out the monomial 2x.
10x2 + 8x
= 2x Â· 5x + 2x Â· 4
= 2x(5x + 4)
We can also factor a polynomial when the GCF of its terms is a binomial.
Factor: 2m(6n - 5) - 7(6n - 5)
