Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yeah. I can explain. Do you know how to find HCF of two no.s ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Great :) Works the same way. Suppose I have two polynomials \[x^2+4x+4\ \text{and}\ {x^2+5x+6}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2We need to find the highest common factor of these two. First step is to factor the polynomial (obviously only if they could be factored ). Can you factor these polynomials ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x^2+2x+2x+4 x(x+2)+2(x+2) (x+2)^2 x^2+5x+6 x^2+3x+2x+6 x(x+3)+2(x+3) (x+2)(x+3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Do you see any common factor in the polynomials ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes, this is the only common factor and this is our HCF

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If you have multiple common factors, just multiply all the common factors and that is your HCF
