Factor the GCF from each term in the expression. Can you please show me the steps on how you reached your answer? Thank you!!

1. look at the m's. the lowest m term is m^2, and it is common to them all.

factor it out.

m^2 ( 8m^5+6m^2 -4)

now look at the numbers. a 2 can be factored out:
2m^2 ( 4m^5+3m^2 -2)

That is it.
