Answer

The GCF is 7$z^{2}$

Work Step by Step

14$z^{4}$-42$z^{3}$+21$z^{2}$ Find prime factors of each term: 14$z^{4}$=2$\times$7$\times$z$\times$z$\times$z$\times$z 42$z^{3}$=2$\times$3$\times$7$\times$z$\times$z$\times$z 21$z^{2}$=3$\times$7$\times$z$\times$z Thus, the Common factors are 7$\times$z$\times$z=7$z^{2}$.
