In mathematics, a polynomial is a part of an expression that is constructed with the finite
length of variables and constants.

These expressions are formed by using the several mathematical operations like addition,
subtraction, multiplication and any type of non negative integer.

In the polynomial expressions, each and every variable with the constants value are known as
term. In between the operations are used to perform the task. Polynomials are used in a wide
area of science and mathematics field.

These polynomials expressions are used in the field of calculus and in numerical analysis.

In the mathematical term we can say that a polynomial equation can either be a zero or it can
be written as the sum of two or more non - zero terms. There is no any boundary which is
related to the number of terms in the polynomial expressions.

The term usually contains the constant and variables that are multiplied with each other. In the
polynomial equation each variables contains the exponent that is non negative integer.

The exponent on a variable in a term is called the degree of that variable in that term, the
degree of the term is the degree of the variables in that term, and the degree of a polynomial
is the largest degree of any one term.

Factoring polynomials expressions or equations is looks like a factoring the number values but
in actual factoring of polynomial expression is a different process than the number.

When factoring polynomial expressions or factoring simple numbers, then in the process there
is a need to find the number or polynomial that can be divide out evenly from the original given
expressions.

Factoring a polynomial is the opposite process of multiplying the polynomials expressions.
These processes are used only when we need to factor the number.

This is the process which is used to obtain the simpler polynomial that can be multiplied
together to give the polynomial that we started with.

In the process of factoring the polynomial values, we need to focus in breaking down the
polynomials expression into the simpler polynomial that has integer coefficient and constants.

The simplest type of factoring is performed only when there is a factor common variable or
number into each term. In performing the factor process on polynomial equation, there is need
to use the distributive law. According to distributive law:

x ( y + z) = xy + xz

Now we show you how to perform the factoring polynomial by using the factoring polynomials
calculator.

Suppose there is a expression 4a – 16y. Now we need to perform the factor operation on
them. By using the factor operation we can solve the problem step by step.

The given factor is 4a – 16y, in which 4a and 16y is the terms of polynomial equation.

The only common thing between the two terms (that can be divided out of each term and then
moved up front) is a number 4. So we can write that:

     4a – 16y = 4 ( )

Now we need to divide the each term by number 4. Then it gives the expression.

4a / 4 – 16y / 4

a – 4y

So, we can write these terms in the factor process as like given below:

         4 ( a – 4y)
