how do you factor 48x3z5y - 36x3z3y4 + 48x2z5y
48x3z5y - 36x3z3y4 + 48x2z5y
The GCF of 48, 36, and 48 is 6;
" x^3, x^3, x^2 is x^2;
" z^5, z^3, z^5 is z^3;
" y, y^4, and y is y
(you figure it out because its the most they all have in common)
Now take that out and see what's left. Post it if you want it checked.
