## anonymous 5 years ago @Mathematics factor out the GCF from the polynomial 1/6x^7+5/6x^4-7/6x^6+1/6x

1. anonymous

looks like common factor is $\frac{1}{6}x$

2. anonymous

but how do you find it?

3. anonymous

$\frac{1}{6}x^7+\frac{5}{6}x^4-\frac{7}{6}x^6+\frac{1}{6}x$ $\frac{1}{6}x(x^6+5x^3-7x^5+1)$

well each term has a 6 in the denominator, and every term has an x in it, so you can "factor it out"

oh okay i get it now thank you so much
