Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1think of there GCF, which is 16x2 then think about how you will get 64x^2 SO what do 16x^3 and 64x^2 have in common? x and 4 right!! so the you basically you get \[16x^2(x4)\] Then you can check to see if thats right by using the distributive property!!
