Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am doing my lesson and they say the GCF would be 6xy and i disagree. Is that correct? It is one of the steps to solving a problem :P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think it would be xy  although i have no clue how to calculate a gcd xD... i'm going to look it up  hold on :P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0o.O ok  it's not as easy, as i thought. But one simple way would just be to find the factors of both expressions and select the common ones... so imho \[\gcd(5xy^3, 6xy) = xy\] cause 5 and 6 don't have any common primefactors... and well xy is obviously the highest degree, cause of the second polynom...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.06xy is definitely wrong  would leave you with \[{5 \over 6} y^2\] for the first term and wikipedia says, it has to divide evenly (remainder = 0). But I guess, you already know ;) anyhow  you're very welcome! :)
