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

What is the lowest common multiple of 30 and the greatest common factor of 3?

There is no answer. There cannot be a lowest common multiple of a single number, such as 30, because "common multiple" means a multiple that two or more numbers have in common. Likewise, there cannot be a highest common factor of a single number, such as 3, because "common factor" means a factor that two or more numbers have in common.
