When simplifying radical expressions how would you find the GCF of 5xy^3 over 6xy? I cant seem to remember :P

I 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

i 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

okie dokie! :)

o.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 prime-factors... and well xy is obviously the highest degree, cause of the second polynom...

Alright then thanks babe :D lol idk why it said the GCF would be 6xy then :P thats weird prolly technical mistake or whatever on the website :) xD so very helpful :)

6xy 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! :)
