15?
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
for variable its very easy lowest degree of common variable would be the common factor !

x? wait im confused.
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
no can you 15 isn't a factor of 20
anonymous
  • anonymous
5 ?
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
okay here is an example 6z^6 + 5 z^5 both terms have z variable now smallest degree of z is 5 so z^5 is my common factor |dw:1438720747533:dw|
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
yep right 5 is common factor what about variable x ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
so x^5 ?
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
hmm that is an exxample look at your question \[\huge\rm \frac{ 20\color{reD}{x^4} +15\color{red}{x^2} }{ 5x^2 }\] what is smallest degree of variable x ?

2?
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
yes right so 5x^2 is common factor!
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
take it oout \[\huge\rm \frac{ \color{reD}{5x^2}( ?????)\color{red}{}) }{ 5x^2 }\] what should go in the parentheses in other words divide 20x^4+15x^2 by common factor \\[\huge\rm \frac{ \frac{20x^4 }{ 5x^2 } +\frac{ 15x^2 }{ 5x^2 }}{ 5x^2 }\]
