16.1 Factoring Polynomials factor out a common factor
2Factoring (Divide): Find a # and/or variable that is divisible by all #’s in the expression. To divide the variable subtract the exponents
3Divisible by… 2 if last digit is an even number. 3 if the sum of the digits is divisible by 34 if the number formed by the last two digits is divisible by 45 if the number ends in 0 or 57 Nike Rule: “just do it” (long division)9 if the sum of the digits by 910 if the last digit is a zero.
