The prime factors of 6 are 2 and 3.

The prime factors of 8 are 2, 2, and 2.

The prime factors of 13 are 13.

From 6, we have factors 2 and 3. From 8, we have 2, 2, and 2, but we already have one 2 from the factors of 6, so we only need to include two more 2s. So, now we have 2, 3, 2, and 2. From 13, we have the factor of 13. So, to determine the least common multiple, multiply 2 x 3 x 2 x 2 x 13 = 312.

Double check:

312 ÷ 6 = 52 which is 13 x 2 x 2

312 ÷ 8 = 39 which is 13 x 3

312 ÷ 13 = 24 which is 2 x 2 x 2 x 3

There are no common prime factors for the three quotients, so 312 is confirmed as the least common multiple.

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
