question: factor (using the GCF) 18D^3+45D^6
answer:would it be 9D^2(2+5D^4)?

no, try expanding your answer, you will not get the original.
should be
9D^3(2 + 5D^3) 
well it says:
A 9D(2D+5D^5)
B 6D^2(3+9D^4)
C 3D^2(6+15D^4)
D 9D^2(2+5D^4) 
And none of those answers , when expanded , will give you the original question the way you typed it.
So what do you think???? 
i thought the answer was D

1. Did you expand D ?
2. Did you check the typing of your original question? 
oh sorry it is 18D^2+45D^6 not 18D^3
