well what can be taken out of each term? each number is divisable by 2 right?? so that can be taken out there's at least 1 x in each term right? so that can be taken out there's at least 1 y in each term right? so THAT can be taken out so we have 2xy²(x²y² - 4xy + 3) :)

okay...same thing here what can be taken out of both terms? both numbers are divisable by 3 right so that can be taken out 3(x - 4)

...well we don't actually need how much it is divisable by...as long as it IS....so since 12 goes into both 12 and 36..the answer is?

close.....you got that 3 can come out of each term....but you also said that x can come out of all the terms.....is there an x with the 9?

OpenStudy (johnweldon1993):

reworder: can you take an x from just 9?

nope

OpenStudy (johnweldon1993):

okay...so there is no x taken out...but -3 yes so -3(x² - 2x + 3)
