Evaluating the expression you entered, we can factor out a variable portion of x^{2} Factor out x^{2} from 1x^{4} Our new x variable piece becomes: x^{(4 - 2)} = x^{2} Our new term becomes x^{2}

Factor out x^{2} from -3x^{3} Our new x variable piece becomes: x^{(3 - 2)} = x^{1} Our new term becomes -3x

Factor out x^{2} from -40x^{2} Our new x variable piece becomes: x^{(2 - 2)} = x^{0} = 1 Our new term becomes -40

Our factored expression is as follows: x^{2}(x^{2}-3x-40)

Attach our factored out piece from the beginning of our calculation for our final expression: x^{2}(x^{2} - 3x - 40)
