Finding the Common Factors and the Greatest Common Factor of Two Numbers

There are times that we encounter questions such as: Do we need to divide things into smaller groups? How many people are we going to invite in our birthday party? Are we trying to arrange something in rows or groups? These are instances when we need Greatest Common Factor (GCF).

Greatest Common Factor can be used in different Applications in Mathematics. In this module, you will perform exercises that will help you understand GCF.

Greatest Common Factor (GCF) is the biggest factor common to the given numbers. We can find the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) of 2 numbers by listing method, prime factorization and continuous division.
