5x^2

5(x + 3)

The GCF is x.

You need at least two terms to find a GCF.

greatest common factor the tree way:ex:25&30 25 30 ^ ^ 5x5 5x6 5x5 are prime numbers so leave it. 5x ^ 5x2x3 2x3=6 then line them up like this:25:5x5 30:5x2x3 then make sum matches.5 and 5 are the only matches so the greatest common factors are 5

25x2 + 40x + 16 = 25x2 + 20x + 20x + 16 = 5x(5x + 4) + 4(5x + 4) = (5x + 4)(5x + 4) or (5x + 4)2

One place where this is used is to simplify fractions: you need to find the greatest common factor, then divide top and bottom by this greatest common factor.Also, in factoring expressions - you can take out the greatest common factor. For example (using "^" for power): 5x^2 + 10x has the greatest common factor 5x; so this can be taken out as a common factor, resulting in 5x(x + 2).
