a) The given expression is,

The GCF of the two terms is

Hence, the required factorization is

b) The given polynomial is,

Let there be two numbers such that,

Then,

Thus, the given polynomial becomes,

Thus, the required factorization is,

The given polynomial is,

The GCF of the terms is, 4.

Hence, the required factorization using GCF method is

Consider the polynomial,

Let a and b be two numbers such that,

Thus, the given polynomial becomes,

Thus, the required factorization is,
