Factor and explain:
34. 8a+12b
35. 18x+6y+12
36. 3+12b+36a
37. 8a+4+12c

34.
8a+12b
=12(2.9+b)
You could now try the rest and post your results for checking.

37. The only common factor is 4.
8a+4+12c = 4(2a + 3c + 1)
The others are similar. Try them yourself.

34. 4(2a+3c+1)
35. 3(6x+2y+4)
36. 3(1+4b+12a)
37. 2(4a+6c+2)

Sorry, my #34 is not correct. I remember seeing the expression from another question. I have probably put it in the wrong response.
#34 should be
8a+12b
=4(2a+3b)
I do not know from where the "+1" in your response came.
#35
you have missed out another factor of 2.
#36 basically correct, although I prefer to order the terms in alphabetical order of the variables, like:
3(12a+4b+1)
#37
Factorization not complete.
Give it another try. You're getting there.
