when you say "related" it's not quite clear which way the scale factor is applied. if ABC is .5 CDE, the all the sides of ABC are 0.5 as big as those of CDE. if CDE is 0.5 ABC, then all the sides of CDE are .5 as big as those of ABC. So, pick the right one, and ...

**Algebra**

find the highest power of primes and variables that divide both terms: 14abc = 14abc 28a^2b^2c^3 = 14abc * 2abc^2 So, the GCF is 14abc It divides both terms, but no higher powers of anything will do so.

Hmmm. ACtually, on the stretch, I'd gave to say neither. a^x passes through (0,1) for any value of a. So there can be no vertical scale factor. The stretch/compression is reversed as you cross the y-axis.

if x>0, 3^x > 1 if x<0, 3^x is between 0 and 1. There is no value of x that will produce a negative result. As for the stretch, I have to ask again, compared to what? 3^x is stretched when compared to 2^x, but it is compressed when compared to 4^x.
