    This says it's a teacher graded assignment, so I hope I'm not helping you to cheat.

    6. GCF is x^2y^2

    x^2y^2(3y + 1)

    --------------------

    x^2y^2 * 2xy^2

    3y + 1

    --------

    2xy^2

    8. GCF is 3x^2

    3x^2(x^2 + 4x - 3)

    -------------------------

    3x^2*3

    x^2 + 4x - 3

    ----------------

    ......3

    9.GCF is 2pq

    2pq(p^4 - 5q^2)

    -----------------------

    2pq(2p^2q^3 + 6p^4q^2)

    p^4 - 5q^2

    ----------------

    (2p^2q^3 + 6p^4q^2)

    may be possible to factor the denominator further.
