1. 2x2x2x2 2. 2x3x4 3. 2x2x2x4

4. GCF=2 5. GCF=4 6. GCF=3

Because we had to times that number many times to find the greatest common factor (GCF).

3. 2x4x4

4. 48,46 Gcf:2

5. 16,36 Gcf: 4

6. 24,18 Gcf: 6

We got the answer by listing all the factors of each number and underlined the ones that have the same thing in common and the highest factor we underlined is the GCF.

We found the answer by listing the factors,and underling the graetest common factors.

We get the answer by showing the factors.

3. 1.2.29

4. GCF=10

5. 45:36: GCF = 6

6. GCF: 9

We used a venn diagram to find the GCF. We put all the factors of each number for their side of the circle. Then we put the numbers that each of them has the same in the middle of the oval. The biggest number in the middle is the GCF

6. 36: 1,2,3,4,9,12,18,36

45: 1,5,9,45 GCF = 9

I find the GCF by finding all the factors of 2 numbers and then finding the greatest number that is a factor of BOTH numbers.
