    \[72 = 2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 3 \times3\]\[78 = 2 \times 3 \times 13\]what factors do 72 and 78 have in common?

    2 times 3 = 6 = gcf ~ 6 is the gcf

    72 can divide by 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 18, 24, 36, 72 78 can divide by 1, 2, 3, 6, 13, 26, 39, 78. so 6 is the greatest common factors
