Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It looks like you can factor out an m and p.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Also. combine all numbers since they are just constants. So multiply 13 x 2 x 3 :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(13m^2n^3p +21m p^2\) is that correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, simply factor the lowest common factor between them :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Your 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There'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.
