make Products (Factor × Factor =
Product). Factoring is the process
of extracting factors (all, prime,
or common) from products. The GCF
(Greatest Common Factor) is the
largest factor shared by products.
Reasons to factor: To reduce
fractions, simplify expressions,
solve equations, and more.

Multiples are integers formed by
multiplying a base factor by a
series of factors (Base × Series =
Multiples). The LCM (Least Common

shared by bases. Uses for
multiples: To create equivalent
fractions, find the LCD (Least
Common Denominator) of unlike
fractions, and more.
