Algebra I: Factoring an expression of exponents with the same base
This is a free lesson from our course in Algebra I
 
   
In this part of lesson you'll learn how to factor an expression of exponents with the same base. Generally speaking, for factoring exponents with the same base, you need to take a common factor out of the expression, and this factor is the base raised to the lowest exponent. For example, x2 is the common factor in the expression x2 + x6, and hence the expression can be rewritten as x2(1 + x4).Factor the binomials and polynomials is an important step in solving problems in a good number of algebraic applications. In factoring polynomials, you determine all the terms that were multiplied together to get the given polynomial. You then try to factor each of the terms you found in the first step. This continues until you canít factor anymore. For Example, here is the complete factorization of the polynomial x2 + x6 = x2(1 + x4) This might seem complicated here as it is written in text, but it will be easy to follow once you hear the instructor explain it in the video above.
