Given the polynomial $6t^{2}$ + 12t - 4 We find the factors of all the terms in the polynomial. Factors of 6: 1,2,3,6 $1 \times 6 ; 2 \times 3$ Factors of 12: 1,2,3,4,6,12 $1 \times 12 ; 2 \times 6$ ; $3 \times 4$ Factors of 4: 2 $2 \times 2$ All the three terms have the factor of 2 and thus the greatest common factor is 2.
