The greatest common factor is the stuff outside the brackets in the answer you chose, and the answer you chose is the fully factorised form of your expression.

Thanks for clearing that up, so the others are not completely factored? Or they are equally completely factored to the one I chose?

Re: Greatest common factor

The other ones are not completely factored. You can check this yourself, can you see any other common factors inside the brackets that can be taken out?

Oh yeh that was quite a silly question I just noticed as soon as I looked at it. Thanks very much.
