FOA/Algebra 1Unit 3A: Factoring & Solving Quadratic EquationsNotesDay 1 – Factor by GCFStandard(s):What is Factoring?Factoring Finding out which two expressions you multiplied together to get onesingle expression.Is like “splitting” an expression into a product of simpler expressions.The opposite of expanding or distributing.Numbers have factors:Expressions have factors too:Review: Finding the GCF of Two NumbersCommon Factors Factors that are shared by two or more numbers are called common factors.Greatest Common Factor (GCF) The greatest of the common factors is called the Greatest Common Factor (GCF). To find the greatest common factor, you can make a factor tree and complete the primefactorization of both numbers. The GCF is the product of the common prime factors. You can also do a factor t-chart for each number and find the largest common factor Example: Find the GCF of 56 and 1042

Circle what is common to both.Example: Find the GCF of 36x2y and 16xyPractice: Find the GCF of the following pairs of expressions.1) 100 and 602) 15x3 and 9x23) 9a2b2, 6ab3, and 12b4) 8x2 and 7y33
