#### Answer

10ef(1 - 2e$f^{2}$ + 3$e^{2}$)

#### Work Step by Step

We are given the polynomial 10ef - 20$e^{2}$$f^{3}$ + 30$e^{3}$f. The GCF of all terms is 10ef, so we can factor that out from each term. 10ef(1) + 10ef(-2e$f^{2}$) + 10ef(3$e^{2}$) Next, we can use the distributive property. 10ef(1 - 2e$f^{2}$ + 3$e^{2}$)
