                    Lesson 1

                                                                                                                                                                          

                                                            Problem:                   Factor: 4x - 32

                                                            Solution                    The largest factor of 4 and 32 is 4.

Step 1:  

                     

                                                                                Solution                          Since the terms do not contain a variable (x) in common, we cannot factor any variables.

Step 2:                        

 

                                                                                Solution                           Then we have, 4(x - 8)

Step 3:           

             

                                                            Solution                    The answer is:  4(x - 8)
