Solution

The numerical coefficients of the given monomials are 6, 9 and 3. The greatest common factor of 6, 9 and 3 is 3.
The common literals appearing in the three monomials are x and y. 
The smallest power of x in the three monomials is 1.
The smallest power of y in the three monomials is 2.
The monomial of common literals with the smallest powers is xy2.
​Hence, the greatest common factor is 3xy2​.
