EXAMPLE

Find the common factors of 24 and 36

24 = 1 x 24 36 = 1 x 36

= 2 x 12 = 2 x 18

= 3 x 8 = 3 x 12

= 4 x 6 = 4 x 9

= 6 x 6

Factors of 24 are: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24

Factors of 36 are: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18, 36

Common factors of 24 and 36 are: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12

The highest common factor is 12.
