For each expression, divide the numerator and denominator by their greatest common factor.

It is x^2 -4 = (x-2)(x+2) when factored and it is the difference of two squares

Factor each of the denominators. Make up an expression that includes all of the factors in the denominators. Example (using "^" for powers):If you have denominators (x^2 - 1), (x-1)^2 and (x+1), factor the first expression, to get denominators: (x+1)(x-1), (x-1)^2 and (x+1). Taking each factor that appears at least once, you get the common denominator: (x+1)(x-1)^2. Note: If a factor, as in this case x-1, appears more than once in one of the expressions, you need to use the highest power.

example x5 + 6x4 + 9x3 To factor this expression, see if each "piece" of the expression has a variable in common. In this case, each piece has an X in common. Now we factor out the smallest exponent of X that we see in the expression. x3(x2+6x +9) You could factor the x squared +6x +9 also, into (x + 3)(x+3)

2(15-2n) Look for the greatest common factor of 30 and -4n. Put it out front, then divide each term by this number to get the expression in the parentheses. 30/2 = 15, -4n/2 = -2n.
