Common Factor of a Trinomial Fun Game Tips:  This game provides practice in finding a factor which is common to all three terms.  Example 1: The trinomial expression (3w+6t3) has the common factor (3). When you factor the trinomial (3w+6t3), the answer is 3w+6t3 = 3(w+2t1).  Example 2: The trinomial expression (12w^{2}+3w6wt) has the common factor (3w). When you factor the trinomial (12w^{2}+3w6wt), the answer is 12w^{2}+3w6wt = 3w(4w+12t). Check your answer by distributing the factor (3w) times the factor (4w+12t) to get (12w^{2}+3w6wt) .  Refresh/Reload the web page to start over again.
