FactorTerms[poly, x]
pulls out any overall factor in poly that does not depend on x.
FactorTerms[poly, {x1, x2, ...}]
pulls out any overall factor in poly that does not depend on any of the xi.
  • FactorTerms[poly, x] extracts the content of poly with respect to x.
  • FactorTerms automatically threads over lists in poly, as well as equations, inequalities and logic functions.
