Do you know the greatest common factor of 3 and 15?
myininaya
  • myininaya
if I write 15 as 3(5) and you compare 3 to 3(5) can you tell me the factors that 3 and 3(5) have in common?

3 is the greatest common factor
myininaya
  • myininaya
yes now let's look at the u's of each term \[3u^9v^4w^3+15u^2v^5\\ 3(u^9v^4w^3+5u^2v^5)\] so this is what we have now but we can factor out more than just what we factored out
myininaya
  • myininaya
now looking at the u part... we have u^9 and u^2
myininaya
  • myininaya
\[u^9=u^2 \cdot u^7\] what factors does \[u^2 \cdot u^7 \text{ and } u^2 \text{ have in common }\]

No problem.

But we still needed to factor out a few more things.
