It looks like you can factor out an m and p.

Also. combine all numbers since they are just constants. So multiply 13 x 2 x 3 :)

Put constants and variables together but keep them separate so you can see

wait, nevermind, are those 3 and 2's mean they are raised to that power?

\(13m^2n^3p +21m p^2\) is that correct?

Ok, simply factor the lowest common factor between them :)

Yes that is correct

Your two common variables are "m" and "p" That's because you have both of them there. There's no "n" variable on the right side. Now, notice that you have ONE "p" on the left and ONE "m" on the left. Those are your common factors.

There's also no two common factors between 13 and 21, so you can just leave them in there. In essence, you're taking out ONE "m" and ONE "p" only.

Now, can you make what your answer is?
