Best Answer

To calculate the LCM, you first have to split the numbers up into their prime factors:

64 = 2x2x2x2x2x2

72 = 2x2x2x3x3

The next step is to calculate the HCF. In this case it will be 2x2x2 = 8. Finally, you multiply the two numbers and divide by the HCF:

64x72/8 = 576

And therefore the LCM of 64 and 72 is 576.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials
