Factor out the greatest common factor from each group.
Tap for more steps…
Group the first two terms and the last two terms.
(6y2-3y)-16y+8=0
Factor out the greatest common factor (GCF) from each group.
3y(2y-1)-8(2y-1)=0
3y(2y-1)-8(2y-1)=0
Factor the polynomial by factoring out the greatest common factor, 2y-1.
(2y-1)(3y-8)=0
(2y-1)(3y-8)=0
If any individual factor on the left side of the equation is equal to 0, the entire expression will be equal to 0.
2y-1=0
3y-8=0
