What is factorisation?

  1. Factorisation is a skill that can help us square root, cube root, HCF and LCM easily

  2. Factorisation is the opposite of the distributive law which shows the HCF of the expression.

  5. Factorisation to me is the reverse of expansion

  6. Factorisation is grouping like terms in an equation together to simplify it.

  8. Factors are the numbers that multiply together to make another number. These numbers are the other number's factors. Factorisation is finding the factors of a number. Factorisation is also the reverse of expansion.

  9. Factorisation is taking out the common multiples from the sum and putting it outside the bracket of the rest of the numbers which is inside the bracket.

  10. It is the reverse of Algebra expansion. You break down the algebraic expression by its factors.

  11. Factorisation is changing an equation by adding brackets into it.

  12. Factorising is the reverse of expanding brackets, so it is, for example, putting 2x^2 + x - 3 into the form (2x + 3)(x - 1). This is an important way of solving quadratic equations. The first step of factorising an expression is to 'take out' any common factors which the terms have.

  13. Factorisation is finding the factors of a number by dividing.

  14. it is using the HCF of the numbers to divide the numbers. and when you multiply it again, it gives you the same answer as before simplifying

  15. Factorisation helps us to condense algebraic equations into simpler expressions.

  16. Factorisation is the opposite of expansion. It is taking out the same factors and put them outside a bracket.

  17. Factoring is like taking a number apart. It means to express a number as the product of its factors. Factors are either composite numbers or prime numbers (except that 0 and 1 are neither prime nor composite).

  19. It is the process of reversing expansion
    This means that the answer should contain brackets unlike an expanded expression

  20. It is a way to break the numbers down into a simpler form so that it could be more easily understood.

  21. Factorisation is to turn a number into its factors. After Factorisation, the results you get will be a simple expression.

  22. It is like a reverse of algebra calculation and dividing the algebra by the factors
    (Not copied I promise)

  23. Factorization is the reverse of expansion

  24. Factorisation is the use of the HCF of two algebraic numbers, converting into simpler forms of algebra like (1+a).
    The final answer will be equivalent to the beginning number

  25. It is the opposite of expansion. When you find the HCF of all the terms and put it outside of a bracket.

    For example:
    If you were to factorise 6xy+9x,
    it would become 3x (2y+3)

    THE END

  27. Factorisation is like simplification, where we find the Highest Common Factor to break down the numbers into the simplest form, with brackets.

    e.g. 16x + 32 + 7xy + 14y
    = 16(x + 2) + 7y(x + 2)
    = (16 + 7y) (x + 2)
