FactorTerms

  • FactorTerms[ poly ] pulls out any overall numerical factor in poly.
  • FactorTerms[ poly , x ] pulls out any overall factor in poly that does not depend on x.
  • FactorTerms[ poly , , , ... ] pulls out any overall factor in poly that does not depend on any of the .
  • Example: FactorTerms[3 - 3x^2].
  • FactorTerms[ poly , x ] extracts the content of poly with respect to x.
  • See notes for Factor.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 1.4.5Section 3.3.1.
