When finding the GCF of a polynomial, can it ever be larger than the smallest coefficient or smaller than the smallest coefficent?

I am stuck and I am not sure on this questio. Any help you can provide me would be great. Thanks!

Please only post your questions once. Repeating posts will not get a quicker response. In addition, it wastes our time looking over reposts that have already been answered in another post. Thank you.

See your later post.

The GCF is always equal to or less

than the smallest coefficient.

Psydag-I think you are confusing me with someone else. I understand, I have a common name.

Henry thank you for your help.
