Work Step by Step

Find the greatest common factor. Find the factors of each term and multiply the factors that are common to all the terms. $4x^3=\underline2\times\underline2\times\underline x\times x\times x$ $8x^2=\underline2\times\underline2\times2\times\underline x\times x$ $12x=3\times\underline2\times\underline2\times\underline x$ GCF=$2\times2\times x=4x$ Factor the GCF out of each term. Use the factors from each term that are not part of the GCF. $4x^3+8x^2+12x=4x(x^2+2x+3)$
