- 1. Greatest Common Factor Lesson 3-3
- 2. Greatest Common Factor (GCF) <ul><li>The greatest common factor is the largest factor that two numbers share. </li></ul><ul><li>Let’s find the GCF of 12 and 42. First, we need to make a list of factors for each number. </li></ul>
- 3. 12 1 x 12 2 x 6 3 x 4 4 x 3 Factors of 12: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6,12 42 1 x 42 2 x 21 3 x 14 4 x ?? 5 x ?? 6 x 7 7 x 6 Factors of 42: 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 14, 21, 42 Common Factors: 1, 2, 3, 6 Greatest Common Factor: 6
- 4. What is the GCF of 18 and 27? 18 27 1 x 18 2 x 9 3 x 6 4 x ? 5 x ? 6 x 3 Factors of 18: 1, 2, 3, 6, 9, 18 1 x 27 2 x ? 3 x 9 4 x ? 5 x ? 6 x ? 7 x ? 8 x ? 9 x 3 Factors of 27: 1, 3, 9, 27 Common Factors: 1, 3, 9 GCF: 9
- 5. What is the GCF of 48 and 60? 48 60 1 x 48 2 x 24 3 x 16 4 x 12 6 x 8 1 x 60 2 x 30 3 x 20 4 x 15 5 x 12 6 x 10 Factors of 48: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 48 Factors of 60: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15, 20, 30, 60 Common Factors: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12 GCF: 12
- 6. Using Prime Factorization <ul><li>Find the prime factorization of each number. </li></ul><ul><li>Identify the common factors and multiply them. </li></ul>
- 7. Example: GCF of 27 and 36 27 3 x 9 3 x 3 Ans. 3x3x3 36 2 x 18 2 x 9 3 x 3 Ans. 2x2x3x3 <ul><li>Both prime factorizations have 3x3 in common. </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore, the GCF is 9. </li></ul>
