Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6The GCF is the product of all factors both terms have in common: \(8u^6v^8 = \color{red}{2 \times 2} \times 2 \times \color{red}{uuuuuu} \times \color{red}{vv}vvvvvv\) \(28u^7v^2x^3 = \color{red}{2 \times 2} \times 7 \times \color{red}{uuuuuu}u \times \color{red}{vv} \times xxx\)
