A) List two examples of pairs of numbers that share a common factor.
B) List a variable pair with a common factor.
C) Why do u think ab+ac is called "simplified form"?
I don't really what they are asking me to do...
ummmm, anyone help me?

Math help needed here.

12 and 16 share 4
26 and 169 share 13
Well, I suppose part c answers part b ab and ac share factor a
I guess whoever wrote this considers ab + ac simpler than a(b+c)
