Work Step by Step

Find the greatest common factor. Find the prime factors of each term and multiply the factors that are common to all the terms. $g^4=\underline g\times g\times g\times g$ $24g^3=3\times2\times2\times2\times\underline g\times g\times g$ $12g^2=3\times2\times2\times\underline g\times g$ $4g=2\times2\times\underline g$ GCF $=g$ Factor the GCF out of each term. Use the factors from each term that are not part of the GCF. $g^4+24g^3+12g^2+4g=g(g^3+24g^2+12g+4)$
