# FactorTerms

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