1 EXAMPLE 1 Multiple Representations Gardening You are dividing a garden into sections. You have 64 marigolds and 120 petunias. You want each section to have the same number of each type of flower and use all the flowers. At most, how many sections can you have?

2 EXAMPLE 1 The greatest number of sections that you can have in SOLUTION Multiple Representations Two methods for finding the GCF are shown. the garden described above is the GCF of 64 and 120. Gardening You are dividing a garden into sections. You have 64 marigolds and 120 petunias. You want each section to have the same number of each type of flower and use all the flowers. At most, how many sections can you have?

3 EXAMPLE 1 The common factors are 1, 2, 4, and 8. The GCF is 8. Factors of 120 : 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 20, 24, 30, 40, 60, 120 Factors of 64 : 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64 METHOD 1 Multiple Representations List all the factors of 64 and 120.

4 EXAMPLE 1 The greatest number of sections that you can have is 8. ANSWER The common prime factors are 2, 2, and 2. The GCF is 2 3, or 8. Multiple Representations Write the prime factorization of 64 and 120. Then find the product of the common prime factors. METHOD 2

5 EXAMPLE 1 1. What If? What is the greatest number of sections GUIDED PRACTICE for Example 1 you can have in Example 1 if you have 72 marigolds and 144 petunias?

6 The greatest number of sections that you can have is 72. ANSWER GUIDED PRACTICE for Example 1 1. What If? What is the greatest number of sections you can have in Example 1 if you have 72 marigolds and 144 petunias?
