How to write the sum of the number 40+25 as the product of their GCF and another sum?

Veronella6nk

Determine each number's prime factors as follows:
$40=2×2×2×5$
$25=5×5$
Now identify the common factors and determine the GCF:
$40=2×2×2×5$
$25=5×5$
Hence:
$\text{GCF}=5$
Factoring out the GCF from each number gives:
$40=2×2×2×\overline{)5}=8$
$25=\overline{)5}×5$
We can therefore rewrite this expression as:
$5\left(8+5\right)$
