  2. I don't know where abdullahi got his answer, but it needs to be reduced to:

    5x = 5/8
    x = 1/8

    Exponents are written online with vertical carats (^). To find the GCF, first find the prime factors.

    (2*2*5)x^9 - (2*2*5)x^7 - (2*2*2*2)x^2

    The GCF = 4x^2

    I hope this helps a little more.
