Answer

3b(3a$c^{2}$ + 2$a^{2}$c - 2a + c)

Work Step by Step

We are given the polynomial 9ab$c^{2}$ + 6$a^{2}$bc - 6ab + 3bc. The GCF of all terms is 3b, so we can factor that out from each term. 3b(3a$c^{2}$) + 3b(2$a^{2}$c) + 3b(-2a) + 3b(c) Next, we can use the distributive property. 3b(3a$c^{2}$ + 2$a^{2}$c - 2a + c)
