So with this problem, we want to find the G C f now 55. Why is five times 11 times why? And 11 y to the fourth? Is this really 11 times four wise? And so there's an 11 in common and a Y in common. So really 11 times. Why are 11 wise RG cf? So let's factor out in 11. Why, then, when we divide 55? Why? By 11 while we get five, we divide 11 wide of the fourth by 11. Why you should get, um Why? To the third power. And so this is our answer.
