  2. Factorisation is the process of turning an algebraic equation into an equation with brackets (to do this find the HCF)

  3. finding the HCF of the two factors, HCF(factors of HCF)

  4. Factorising is to make a long equation to a short equation without any more brackets.

  5. Factorisation is the opposite of expansion, it is making an algebraic expression more compact.

  7. Factorisation is the reverse of expansion, where it is finding the highest common factor, and then pulling out such that it can multiply all the terms.

  12. Factorising is the reverse of expanding brackets, so it is, for example, putting 2x² + x - 3 into the form (2x + 3)(x - 1). This is an important way of solving quadratic equations. The first step of factorising an expression is to 'take out' any common factors which the terms have.

  14. Factorisation is the process when you factorise an equation by finding the highest common factor between the numbers. This is also a way to 'simplify an equation'.???

  18. Factorisation is like simplification, like using division and multiplication to simplify an equation

  20. Factorisation is the opposite of expansion, it makes the equation shorter and neater.

  23. Factorisation is a process where the Highest Common Factor is picked out, the algebraic expression is then factorised. The algebraic expression can also be factorised through Grouping.
