Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The greatest common factor of two or more whole numbers is the largest whole number that divides evenly into each of the numbers. There are two ways to find the greatest common factor. The first method is to list all of the factors of each number, then list the common factors and choose the largest one.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Take the numbers 32 and 80 32 can be shown as 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 80 can be shown as 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 5 So the highest common factor is 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 which is 16 32 / 16 = 2 80/16 = 5
