Factorise a term with variables (Example for this math problem)


A term, which may contain up to three variables, has to be factorised. Common terms have to be factored out and put outside the brackets.

The shape of the factorised term, which is the answer to the problem, may be one of these:

a) 3*(x+6)

b) 3x*(y+6)

c) 3x*(x+7)

d) 3(2x+3y)

e) 3x(2x+3y)

f) 3(2x+3y+3z)

In the b,c,d and e variants, variables have to be factored out. In the c and e variants, squares of variables may occur.

The term variants that may occur can be specified. The range for the numbers and products can be chosen. There is an option to choose whether negative numbers may be part of the term.
