# FactorTermsList

FactorTermsList[poly]

gives a list in which the first element is the overall numerical factor in poly, and the second element is the polynomial with the overall factor removed.

FactorTermsList[poly,{x1,x2,}]

gives a list of factors of poly. The first element in the list is the overall numerical factor. The second element is a factor that does not depend on any of the xi. Subsequent elements are factors which depend on progressively more of the xi.

## Basic Examples(1)

Pull out an overall numerical factor, but do no further factoring:

## Scope(2)

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:

Here the terms have no common factors:

## Options(1)
