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

Let k be the whole number we are searching for.

Let 823519 divided by k be n, remainder 3r

and 274658 divided by k be m, remainder r


823519 = n k + 3r and

274658 = m k + r

Multiply the second equation by three and subtract the first:

455 = (3m - n) k

So k is a factor of 455.

That means it is 1,5,7,13,35,65,91 or 455

I can write 823519 as 1809*455 + 424

Each time I divide this by one of the eight possibilities for k the 1809*455 part will

go exactly and not change the remainder. so I only need to look at the 424 part.

Listing the possibilities:

424 divided by 1 has a remainder of 0

424 divided by 5 has a remainder of 4

424 divided by 7 has a remainder of 4

424 divided by 13 has a remainder of 8

424 divided by 35 has a remainder of 179

424 divided by 65 has a remainder of 34

424 divided by 91 has a remainder of 60

424 divided by 455 has a remainder of 424

The 1 and 91 choices are the only ones which leave a remainder which is a multiple of 3

274658 divided by 91 has a remainder of 20.

Therefore the answer is 91!
