    well it cant have an x or y because not all of them have x and y so now you just have to figure out the greatest number that goes into all 3 of the numbers

    take each number and divide it by 6, then if all of that works, try 18

    \[18=2\times 3^2, 30=2\times 3\times 5,54=2\times 3^3\] greatest common factor is \[2\times 3=6\]
