    Yeah. I can explain. Do you know how to find HCF of two no.s ?

    Great :) Works the same way. Suppose I have two polynomials \[x^2+4x+4\ \text{and}\ {x^2+5x+6}\]

    We 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 ?

    x^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)

    Do you see any common factor in the polynomials ?

    (x+2)

    Yes, this is the only common factor and this is our HCF

    If you have multiple common factors, just multiply all the common factors and that is your HCF
