##### Solution Summary

A polynomial is factored. The expert factors the greatest common factors.

##### Solution Preview

Ok, first of all, just consider the first term:

4t(xt+yt)

Is there any GCF to factor out here? Yes, we have t. Therefore:

4t(xt+yt)=4t^2(x+y)

Ok, let's go back to the problem:

4t^2(x+y)+4t(x+y)-24x-24y

consider the last second two terms:

GCF(-24x-24y)=-24 so -24x-24y=-24(x+y) then ...
