Grade 7 - Mathematics 4.2 Factorization by Rearrangement of Terms
Example:
Factorize ax-by-ay+bx. Solution:
Rearranging the given terms, we have
= ax-ay+bx-by
= a(x-y) + b(x-y)
= (a+b)(x-y)
Therefore ax-by-ay+bx = (a+b)(x-y) Directions: Solve the following problems and show your work. Also write at least ten examples of your own.
