Q. 73.7( 3 Votes )

Find the greatest common factor (GCF/HCF) of the following polynomials:


Answer :

The numerical coefficients of given numerical are 4, -12, 18.

Greatest common factor of 4, -12, 18 is 2.


Common literals appearing in given numerical are a and b


Smallest power of a in three monomials = 2


Smallest power of b in three monomials = 1


Monomials of common literals with smallest power= a2b


Hence, the greatest common factor = 2a2b
