Factoring (Distributive Property in Reverse) Exercises

Example 1

Find the greatest common factor in each expression. 

4xy - 8y + 3y5

Example 2

Find the greatest common factor in each expression.

5z + 25z2

Example 3

Find the greatest common factor in each expression.

abc + 5bc - b2c

Example 4

Find the greatest common factor in each expression.

20x - 16y

Example 5

Factor each expression as much as possible. Check your answers by multiplication before clicking to see if you got them right. We can't force you to do that, of course, but it would mean a lot to us, and we would be disappointed in you if you didn't. We will use the guilt tactic here and see if that works.

2x3 + 4x

Example 6

Factor each expression as much as possible. Check your answers by multiplication before clicking to see if you got them right. We can't force you to do that, of course, but it would mean a lot to us, and we would be disappointed in you if you didn't. We will use the guilt tactic here and see if that works. 

9y + 6x

Example 7

Factor each expression as much as possible. Check your answers by multiplication before clicking to see if you got them right. We can't force you to do that, of course, but it would mean a lot to us, and we would be disappointed in you if you didn't. We will use the guilt tactic here and see if that works.

10a - 20b + 30c

Example 8

Factor each expression as much as possible. Check your answers by multiplication before clicking to see if you got them right. We can't force you to do that, of course, but it would mean a lot to us, and we would be disappointed in you if you didn't. We will use the guilt tactic here and see if that works.

- 4z - 12y

Example 9

Factor each expression as much as possible. Check your answers by multiplication before clicking to see if you got them right. We can't force you to do that, of course, but it would mean a lot to us, and we would be disappointed in you if you didn't. We will use the guilt tactic here and see if that works.
