1-factor the monomial into its smallest factors.

a-14xy to the power of 2 z
b-40n to the power of 3 m to the power of two

Solution:

a) (14xy)^2z

(14xy)^z times (14xy)^z

So, the smallest factor is (14xy)^z

3
b) (40n) * m^2

= (40)^3 * n^3 * m^2 [ (40)^3 = 40*40*40 = 64000]

Ans = 64000 n^3 m^2

2-find the GFC and the ...
