Let's take two expressions xy and yz. Here, xy is the product of x and y and yz is the product of y and z. x and y are factors of xy and y and z are the factors of yz. y is factor of both the expressions. So, y is called the highest common factor (HCF) of the expressions xy and yz.
\( \boxed {Note: HCF\:\text {divides each of the given expression exactly} } \)
Note: If there is no any common factor in the given expression, HCF = 1 as 1 is the factor of any number. |
Let's take two expressions a^{2}b - ab^{2}and a^{3}b - ab^{3}.Factorizing the expressions,
Here,
\begin{align*} first \: expression &= a^2 b - ab^2 \\ &= ab (a -b) \end{align*}
\begin{align*} second \: expression &= a^3 b - ab^3 \\ &=ab (a^2 - b^2) \\ &= ab(a + b) \: (a - b)\\ \end{align*}
common factors = ab(a - b)
Remaining factors = (a + b)
\begin{align*} LCM &= Common \: factors \times Remaining \: factor \\ &= ab(a - b) \times (a + b)\\ &= ab(a^2 - b^2).\end{align*}
