a)To find the GCF, list the factors and multiply those factors both numbers have in common. $$\displaystyle{6}\to{2}\cdot{3}$$
$$\displaystyle{15}{n}\to{3}\cdot{5}\cdot{n}$$
So, the GCF is: 3

b)To find the GCF, list the factors and multiply those factors both numbers have in common. $$\displaystyle{4}{m}\to{2}\cdot{2}\cdot{m}$$
$$\displaystyle{m}^{{2}}\to{m}\cdot{m}$$
So, the GCF is: m
