Question 1 of 6
1. Question
Factor.`18x+9`Hint
Help VideoCorrect
Nice Job!
Incorrect
A Greatest Common Factor is the factor of two terms with the highest value.First, find the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) of the two terms.Factors of `18x`: `1``times2times``9``times x`Factors of `9`: `1``times``9`Collect the common factors and multiply them all to get the GCF.GCF `=` `1``times``9` `=` `9` Since the first term is negative, we can make the GCF negative as well to make the factorising easier.Therefore, the GCF that we will use is `9`.Finally, factor by placing `9` outside a bracket.Also, place the given polynomial inside the bracket with each term divided by `9`, then simplify.`9[(18xdiv(9))+(9div(9))]` `=` `9[2x+(1)]` `=` `9(2x1)` `9(2x1)`

Excellent!
Incorrect
A Greatest Common Factor is the factor of two terms with the highest value.First, find the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) of the two terms.Factors of `2m`: `2``times m`Factors of `6`: `2``times3`Since the first term is negative, we can make the GCF negative as well to make the factorising easier.Therefore, the GCF that we will use is `2`.Finally, factor by placing `2` outside a bracket.Also, place the given polynomial inside the bracket with each term divided by `2`, then simplify.`2[(2mdiv(2))(6div(2))]` `=` `2[m(3)]` `=` `2(m+3)` `2(m+3)` 
Question 3 of 6

Well Done!
Incorrect
A Greatest Common Factor is the factor of two terms with the highest value.First, find the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) of the two terms.Factors of `6ab^2`: `6``times``a``times``b``times b`Factors of `30ab`: `5times``6``times``a``times``b`Collect the common factors and multiply them all to get the GCF.GCF `=` `6``times``a``times``b` `=` `6ab` Since the first term is negative, we can make the GCF negative as well to make the factorising easier.Therefore, the GCF that we will use is `6ab`.Finally, factor by placing `6ab` outside a bracket.Also, place the given polynomial inside the bracket with each term divided by `6ab`, then simplify.`6ab[(6ab^2div(6ab))+(30abdiv(6ab))]` `=` `6ab[b+(5)]` `=` `6ab(b5)` `6ab(b5)`

Great Work!
Incorrect
A Greatest Common Factor is the factor of two terms with the highest value.First, find the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) of the two terms.Factors of `20m`: `2times``10``times``m`Factors of `10m^2`: `1times``10``times``m``times m`Collect the common factors and multiply them all to get the GCF.GCF `=` `10``times``m` `=` `10m` Since the first term is negative, we can make the GCF negative as well to make the factorising easier.Therefore, the GCF that we will use is `10m`.Finally, factor by placing `10m` outside a bracket.Also, place the given polynomial inside the bracket with each term divided by `10m`, then simplify.`10m[(20mdiv(10m))(10m^2div(10m))]` `=` `10m(2+m)` `10m(2+m)`

Fantastic!
Incorrect
A Greatest Common Factor is the factor of two terms with the highest value.First, find the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) of the two terms.Factors of `8x^2`: `2times``4``times``x``times x`Factors of `20x`: `4``times5times``x`Collect the common factors and multiply them all to get the GCF.GCF `=` `4``times``x` `=` `4x` Since the first term is negative, we can make the GCF negative as well to make the factorising easier.Therefore, the GCF that we will use is `4x`.Finally, factor by placing `4x` outside a bracket.Also, place the given polynomial inside the bracket with each term divided by `4x`, then simplify.`4x[(8x^2div(4x))+(20xdiv(4x))]` `=` `4x[2x+(5)]` `=` `4x(2x5)` `4x(2x5)`

6. Question
Factor.`26b^2c39bc^2`Hint
Help VideoCorrect
Correct!
Incorrect
A Greatest Common Factor is the factor of two terms with the highest value.First, find the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) of the two terms.Start by listing down their factors.Factors of `26b^2c`: `2times``13``times` `b` `times b times` `c`Factors of `39bc^2`: `3times``13``times` `b` `times` `c``times c`Collect the common factors and multiply them all to get the GCF.GCF `=` `13``times``b``times``c` `=` `13bc` Since the first term is negative, we can make the GCF negative as well to make the factorising easier.Therefore, the GCF that we will use is `13bc`.Finally, factor by placing `13bc` outside a bracket.Also, place the given polynomial inside the bracket with each term divided by `13bc`, then simplify.`13bc[(26b^2cdiv13bc)+(39bc^2div13bc)]` `=` `13bc[2b+(3c)]` `=` `13bc(2b+3c)` `13bc(2b+3c)`
