Using the diagram, factor four
π₯ plus 12.

This diagram has images that
reflect four π₯ and 12. The diagram on the right-hand
side has combined the two images. And itβs taken the bar of size
12 and divided it into four evenly sized pieces. We know that 12 divided by four
equals three. This diagram has removed a
factor of four from the 12 and from the four π₯. 12 divided by four equals
three. And four π₯ divided by four
equals π₯.

We see that four times π₯ plus
four times three equals four π₯ plus 12. These are equivalent
expressions. And so, we can say that four π₯
plus 12 is equal to four times π₯ plus three. We can also say that the
highest common factor of four π₯ and 12 is four. We have undistributed the
highest common factor from these two terms to give us four times π₯ plus
three.
