Algebra - Factorising algebraic expressions - practice questions

Factorising algebraic expressions - practice questions

The distributive law states:

_a_(_b_ + _c_) =_ a_ x _b_ +_ a_ x _c_ =_ ab_ + _ac_

The process of factorisation makes use of the Distributive Law in reverse.

That is:_ ab_ + _ac_ = _a_(_b_ +_ c_)

The common factor of_ ab_ and _ac_ equals_ a._

The highest common factor (HCF) is the largest factor that two or more
terms of an algebraic expression have in common.

You should be able to use all these techniques in the practice questions.
