Factors of 12 =1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12.

Therefore, common factor of 8 and 12 = 1, 2and 4.

Highest common factor (H.C.F) of 8 and 12 = 4.




6. What is the highest common factor (H.C.F) of 360 and 210?

Solution:

Factors of 360 = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 15, 18, 20, 24, 30, 36, 40, 45, 60, 72, 90, 120, 180 and 360.

Factors of 210 = 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 10, 14, 15, 21, 30, 35, 42, 70, 105, and 210.

Therefore, common factor of 360 and 210= 1, 2, 3,5, 6, 10, 15 and 30.

Highest common factor (H.C.F) of 360 and 210 = 30.



7. What is the highest common factor (H.C.F) of 36, 54 and 63?

Solution:

Factors of 36 = 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18 and 36.

Factors of 54 = 1, 2, 3, 6, 9, 18, 27, and 54.

Factors of 63 =1, 3, 7, 9, 21, and 63.

Therefore, common factor of 36, 54 and 63 = 1, 3 and 9.

Highest common factor (H.C.F) of 36, 54 and 63 = 9.


8. What is the greatest common factor (G.C.F) of 10 and 300?

Solution:

Factors of 10 = 1, 2, 5 and 10.

Factors of 300 =1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15, 20, 25, 30, 50, 60, 75, 100, 150 and 300.

Therefore, common factor of 10 and 300 = 1, 2, 5 and 10.

Greatest common factor (G.C.F) of 10 and 300 = 10.


9. Is 1 the greatest common factor (G.C.F) of 11 and 300?

Solution:

Factors of 11 = 1 and 11.

Factors of 300 =1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15, 20, 25, 30, 50, 60, 75, 100, 150 and 300.

Therefore, common factor of 11 and 300 = 1.

Greatest common factor (G.C.F) of 11 and 300 = 1.

Yes, 1 is the greatest common factor (G.C.F) of 11 and 300.
