Greatest common factor of a polynomial?
I forgot my math textbook at school and I want to make sure I'm doing my homework correctly.
"Find the greatest common factor of the terms in the polynomial."
4x^4 + 12x^3, my answer = 4x
So am I supposed to find something that factors into each monomial? (4x^4 AND 12x^3 in this case)
Problem I'm on now: 10y^2 + 4y - 64
