# Factorization of multivariable polynomial

I have a polynomials of multivariable for instance: $$P=yx+2^4xy+3+5^2xz+3^4zx$$

Now I would like to do the following:

1. extract those temrs that only has $$z$$ .

2. extract terms that only has $$y$$

3. express my polynomial with something like this: $$P=z(...)+y(...)+(some constants)$$

I knoe its quite easy but this is just an example what I want to do in real is a polynomial with 60 terms in it so i would like to know the procedure for doing this.

• tried Collect? – kglr Jul 11 at 9:14
• Your example is bad since in fact the polynomial is 3 + 17 x y + 106 x z, which remains the same after vars = Variables[P];Collect[P, Rest[vars], Factor] – user18792 Jul 11 at 9:17
• @ user18792 the answer to this example is straightforward and supposed to be $P=z(3^4x+5^2x)+y(x+2^4x)+3$ – Jason Jul 11 at 9:20
• @ kglr Thanks it worked – Jason Jul 11 at 11:51

You can use Collect:
poly = Inactivate[y x + 2^4 x y + 3 + 5^2 x z + 3^4 z x, Power]
