Another Common Factor - Visualizing Algebra

  • 0:00 - 0:05
    We can factor an a from ax and ay so we have a times x plus y. We can also
  • 0:05 - 0:10
    factor a 2 from 2x and 2y. So we'll have plus 2 times x plus y. And notice if we
  • 0:10 - 0:16
    were to just distribute we'd get back with what we started with. But in this
  • 0:16 - 0:21
    line there's something incredible happening. This would be one term made up of
  • 0:21 - 0:27
    two factors a times x plus y. This would be another term made up of two factors,
  • 0:27 - 0:32
    2 and x plus y. So do you see it? What's the common factor for each of these
  • 0:32 - 0:34
    terms? Write your answer here.
