 Question 391343: Hi There is one type of factoring a polynomial that i cant get. Can you break this problem down for me and explain it? 2x(3x-5) -7(3x-5) They say the GCF is (3x-5). They gave this as the answer.... (3x-5)(2x-7) Please help i dont get thisFound 2 solutions by stanbon, josmiceli:Answer by stanbon(60771)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!2x(3x-5) -7(3x-5) --- Right. You have two terms and both terms have 3x-5 as a factor --- So you "factor out" the common factor and get: (3x-5)(2x-7) ===================== Cheers, Stan H. ============ Answer by josmiceli(10616)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Anything in parentheses is a factor. In simplified terms you have No matter what represents, it is a factor, and you can factor it out If then I get
