FactorTerms

FactorTerms[poly]
pulls out any overall numerical factor in poly.
FactorTerms
pulls out any overall factor in poly that does not depend on x.
FactorTerms
pulls 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.

Define a larger polynomial:
Pull out an overall numerical factor:
Pull out factors that do not depend on x:
Pull out factors that do not depend on x and y and then factors that do not depend on x:
Pull out overall numerical factor over integers modulo 7:
Expand distributes the common factor over the terms, effectively reverting FactorTerms:
