Q 1 - Factor out the gcf from the sum of whole numbers (39 + 65)

A - 13(3 + 5)

B - 13(3 + 6)

C - 13(4 + 5)

D - 13(3 ÷ 5)

### Explanation

Step 1:

39 = 3 × 13

65 = 5 × 13.

Their gcf = 13.

Step 2:

(39 + 65) = (3 × 13 + 5 × 13) = 13(3 + 5)

Q 2 - Factor out 7 from the sum of whole numbers (147 + 84)

A - 7(21 − 12)

B - 7(21 ÷ 12)

C - 7(21 + 12)

D - 7(22 + 12)

### Explanation

Step 1:

147 = 7 × 21
84 = 7 × 12

Step 2:

Factoring out 7 from (147 + 84)

(147 + 84) = (7 × 21 + 7 × 12) = 7(21 + 12)

Q 3 - Factor out g. c. f from the difference of whole numbers (144 − 96)

A - 48(3 + 2)

B - 48(3 − 2)

C - 48(3 ÷ 2)

D - 48(4 − 2)

### Explanation

Step 1:

144 = 3 × 3 × 16 = 3 × 48
96 = 2 × 3 × 16 = 2 × 48

Their gcf = 48

Step 2:

Factoring out the gcf from (144 − 96)

(144 − 96) = (3 × 48 − 2 × 48) = 48(3 − 2)

Q 4 - Factor out 6 from the sum of whole numbers (96 + 78)

A - 6(16 ÷ 13)

B - 6(16 − 13)

C - 6(16 + 12)

D - 6(16 + 13)

### Explanation

Step 1:

96 = 6 × 16

78 = 6 × 13

Step 2:

Factoring out 6 from (96 + 78)

(96 + 78) = (6 × 16 + 6 × 13) = 6(16 + 13)

Q 5 - Factor out the gcf from the sum of whole numbers (36 + 96)

A - 12(3 ÷ 8)

B - 12(3 + 8)

C - 12(3 × 8)

D - 12(3 + 9)

### Explanation

Step 1:

36 = 3 × 12
96 = 8 × 12

Their gcf = 12

Step 2:

Factoring out the gcf from (36 + 96)

(36 + 96) = (3 × 12 + 8 × 12) = 12(3 + 8)

Q 6 - Factor out g. c. f from the difference of whole numbers (153 − 102)

A - 51(3 − 2)

B - 51(3 + 2)

C - 51(3 × 2)

D - 51(3 − 3)

### Explanation

Step 1:

153 = 3 × 3 × 17

102 = 2 × 3 × 17

Their gcf = 51

Step 2:

Factoring out the gcf from (153 − 102)

(153 − 102) = (3 × 51 − 2 × 51) = 51(3 − 2)

Q 7 - Factor out 6 from the sum of whole numbers (126 + 168)

A - 6(21 × 28)

B - 6(21 − 28)

C - 6(21 ÷ 28)

D - 6(21 + 28)

### Explanation

Step 1:

126 = 2 × 3 × 3 × 7 = 6 × 21

168 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 7 = 6 × 28

Step 2:

Factoring out 6 from (126 + 168)

(126 + 168) = (6 × 21 + 6 × 28) = 6(21 + 28)

Q 8 - Factor out 11 from the difference of whole numbers (143 − 121)

A - 11(13 − 10)

B - 11(13 + 11)

C - 11(13 − 11)

D - 11(13 ÷ 11)

### Explanation

Step 1:

121 = 11 × 11

143 = 11 × 13

Step 2:

Factoring out 11 from (143 − 121)

(143 − 121) = (11 × 13 − 11 × 11) = 11(13 − 11)

Q 9 - Factor out g. c. f from the difference of whole numbers (153 − 136)

A - 17(9 + 8)

B - 17(9 ÷ 8)

C - 17(9 − 8)

D - 17(9 − 7)

### Explanation

Step 1:

153 = 9 × 17

136 = 8 × 17

Their gcf = 17

Step 2:

Factoring out gcf from (153 − 136)

(153 − 136) = ( 9 × 17 − 8 × 17) = 17(9 − 8)

Q 10 - Factor out 12 from the sum of whole numbers (156 + 180)

A - 12(13 ÷ 15)

B - 12(13 + 15)

C - 12(13 × 15)

D - 12(13 − 15)

### Explanation

Step 1:

156 = 12 × 13

180 = 12 × 15

Step 2:

Factoring out 12 from (156 + 180)

(156 + 180) = (12 × 13 + 12 × 15) = 12(13 + 15)
