# Chapter 5 - Section 5.5 - The Greatest Common Factor and Factoring by Grouping - Exercise Set: 62

4$x^{3}$$y^{2}(3x - 4y) #### Work Step by Step 1. For the polynomial 12x^{4}$$y^{2}$ - 16$x^{3}$$y^{3} we find the GCF, which is 4x^{3}$$y^{2}$ 2. Factor out the GCF. 4$x^{3}$$y^{2}(3x) + 4x^{3}$$y^{2}$(-4y) 3. Use the distributive property to simplify. 4$x^{3}$$y^{2}$(3x - 4y)
