To find the greatest common factor of two numbers, you first need to break those numbers down into their prime factors. For 105 and 147 this is:

105 = 3x5x7

147 = 3x7x7

The next step is to identify any common prime factors. In this case, both numbers have a 3 as a prime factor, and a 7 as a prime factor. Multiply these together to get the GCF:

3x7 = 21

Thus the greatest common factor of 105 and 147 is 21.

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
