To find the greatest common factor (GCF) of (12x) and (40x^2), follow these steps:

- Factor each term completely.
- Identify the common factors shared by both terms.
- Determine the greatest common factor by taking the product of the common factors, considering their highest power if applicable.

For (12x), the factors are (2 \times 2 \times 3 \times x).

For (40x^2), the factors are (2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 5 \times x \times x).

The common factors shared by both terms are (2 \times 2 \times x = 4x).

Therefore, the GCF of (12x) and (40x^2) is (4x).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
