Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well think of it this way \[x^6 = x^4\times x^2\] this may help you identify the GCF

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0common variable with the smallest degree so in this question x^4 ,x^6 variables are common and smallest exponent is 4 so x^4 would be gcf another example \[\huge\rm x^{!3} , x^{20} ,x^{90}\] variables are common n alll 3 terms and smallest exponent is 13 so x^13 is gcf :=)
