# Pre-Algebra - Factoring with the GCF

The Greatest Common Factor is the largest positive integer that divides two or more numbers without a remainder. This concept can be applied to factoring polynomials, which makes things a bit trickier, but very important as this is often the first step in solving more difficult math problems. In today's free Pre-Algebra video, Edward Burger gives you several examples to run through to get you used to factoring polynomials using the greatest common factor.

Get ready to dive deep into factoring polynomials. You'll start with the basics and work your way to the last lecture where you'll learn how to handle the ever-exotic binomial factors. Sounds tough, right? But, with our Factoring with the GCF video, you'll quickly learn the basics and have no problem handling complex factoring problems.

Today's free video has a whopping 4 lectures on it! So, don't forget to click on the forward button directly left of the time stamp to move to the next lecture. Each lecture builds on the previous to give you a solid foundation in factoring polynomials using the greatest common factor.
