Dr. Fraser begins this new section on Factoring with Special Products. After reviewing prime numbers and composite numbers, you will learn prime factored form and factored form of monomials. Then, you will dive into the greatest common factor with examples covering numbers as well as monomials with variables.
concepts of prime factor, composite factor, and the
prime factorization of a number from your earlier work.
A monomial is in
factored form if it is expressed as a product of prime
numbers and variables, and no variable has an exponent greater than
common factor (GCF) of 2 or more monomials is the product of
their common factors.
