Chapter 5 - Section 5.5 - The Greatest Common Factor and Factoring by Grouping - Exercise Set: 43



Work Step by Step

We are given the polynomial $-20x^{2}y+16xy^{3}$. The GCF of all terms is $4xy$, so we can factor out $4xy$ from both terms. $4xy(-5x)+4xy(4y^{2})$ Next, we can use the distributive property. $4xy(-5x+4y^{2})$
