How can we use a greatest common factor of two or more monomials to solve problems? How can we use a least common multiple of two or more monomials to solve problems? When do we need to use a greatest common factor to model a situation? When do we need to use a least common multiple to model a situation? Essential Questions

3
You can find the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) of two or more monomials by finding the product of their common prime factors.

Find the GCF of 16xy 2 and 30xy 3 Example 1 16xy 2 : 2 2 2 2 x y y 30xy 3 : 2 3 5 x y y y

7
Find the GCF of 16xy 2 and 30xy 3 Example 1 16xy 2 : 2 2 2 2 x y y 30xy 3 : 2 3 5 x y y y The GCF of 16xy 2 and 30xy 3 is 2xy 2

8
You can find the Least Common Multiple (LCM) of two or more monomials by multiplying the factors, using the common factors only once.

9
Find the LCM of 18xy 2 and 10y Example 2

10
Find the LCM of 18xy 2 and 10y Example 2 18xy 2 : 2 3 3 x y y 10y: 2 5 y

11
Find the LCM of 18xy 2 and 10y Example 2 18xy 2 : 2 3 3 x y y 10y: 2 5 y

12
Find the LCM of 18xy 2 and 10y Example 2 18xy 2 : 2 3 3 x y y 10y: 2 5 y LCM: 2 3 3 5 x y y

13
Find the LCM of 18xy 2 and 10y Example 2 18xy 2 : 2 3 3 x y y 10y: 2 5 y LCM: 2 3 3 5 x y y The LCM of 18xy 2 and 10y is 90xy 2

14
To factor a polynomial means to write the polynomial as a product of other polynomials. First, find the GCF of its terms (if the GCF exists). Next, use the distributive property to write the polynomial in factored form.

15
Polynomial:21x 2 – 28xy 3

16
Polynomial:21x 2 – 28xy 3 Find the GCF of terms:7x(3x) – 7x(4y 3 )

17
Polynomial:21x 2 – 28xy 3 Find the GCF of terms:7x(3x) – 7x(4y 3 ) Use the Distributive Property:7x(3x – 4y 3 )
