Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I don't understand what is the GCF of one polynomial. The GCF is the greatest common factor of 2 or more numbers or polynomials. Start with the factors: x, x + 1, x  2 Now multiply them together. \(x(x + 1)(x  2) \) \(= (x^2 + x)(x  2) \) \(= x^3  2x^2 + x^2  2x\) \(=x^3  x^2  2x\) Our polynomial is: \(x^3  x^2  2x\) Since we created our own polynomial from factors, now we know that this polynomial factors as \(x^3  x^2  2x = x(x + 1)(x  2)\) You can combine x with x + 1, and later x with x  2, and have two other forms of the polynomial: \(x^3  x^2  2x = (x^2 + x)(x  2)\) \(x^3  x^2  2x = (x^2  2x)(x + 1)\)
