In this lesson, you will learn how to factor polynomials using the greatest common factor (GCF). The two main steps involve finding the GCF of the numbers and variables, and then using the distributive property in reverse to factor out the GCF. The instructor offers examples and explains how to divide each term by the GCF, making for a clearer understanding of the process. By the end, you will be able to confidently factor polynomials using the GCF.
