To factor a polynomial expression, find what can be divided out of every term in the expression. The expression becomes rearraged, with the divisor factored out and the remaining terms are placed within parantheses.
If given the expression 4x + 24, the the factored polynomial would be 4(x + 6). All the original terms are divisible by 4. Be sure to be mindful of you signs when dealing with more complex expressions.
