2 Greatest Common Factor (GCF) – The largest number that divides exactly into two or more numbers

3 30 and 84 Begin with two numbers. Step 1 – Complete the prime factorization of these numbers. Do not use exponents x 3 x 5 = x 2 x 3 x 7=84

4 Step 2 – Write the prime factorizations underneath each other 2 x 3 x 5=30 2 x 2 x 3 x 7=84 Step 3 – Circle each number that appears in both factorizations 2 x 3 x 5 =30 2 x 2 x 3 x 7=84

5 Note-The second 2 is not circled in the bottom prime factorization because 2 only appears once in the first factorization. 2 x 3 x 5 =30 2 x 2 x 3 x 7=84 Step 4-Multiply the circled numbers. 2 x 3=6 6 IS YOUR GCF FOR 30 AND 84!

6 Find the GCF of 24 and 96 Step 1-Prime Factorization x 2 x 2 x 3= x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3=96 Step 2-Write the prime factorizations underneath each other. 2 x 2 x 2 x 3=24 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3=96

7 Find the GCF of 24 and 96 Step 3-Circle the common numbers. Step 4-Multiply the circled numbers. 2 x 2 x 2 x 3=24 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3=96 2 x 2 x 2 x 3=24 24 IS YOUR GCF FOR 24 AND 96!

8 Find the GCF of 18 and 35 Step 1-Prime Factorization x 3 x 3= x 7=35 Step 2-Write the prime factorizations underneath each other. 2 x 3 x 3=18 5 x 7=35

9 Find the GCF of 18 and 35 Step 3-Circle the common numbers. Note-If the prime factorizations have no numbers in common, the GCF is 1. 1 IS YOUR GCF FOR 18 AND 35! 2 x 3 x 3=18 5 x 7=35 WE DON’T HAVE ANY COMMON NUMBERS!

10 Find the GCF of 15 and 36 Step 1-Prime Factorization x 5= x 2 x 3 x 3=36 Step 2-Write the prime factorizations underneath each other. 3 x 5=15 2 x 2 x 3 x 3=36

11 Find the GCF of 15 and 36 Step 3-Circle the common numbers. 3 x 5 =15 2 x 2 x 3 x 3=36 3 IS YOUR GCF FOR 15 AND 36! Note-If the prime factorizations only have one number in common, that number is your GCF.

12 To find the GCF for more than 2 numbers, take the same steps as before, but you will circle the common numbers in all of the prime factorizations.

13 24, 48, and 60 Begin with the given numbers. Step 1 – Complete the prime factorization of these numbers. Do not use exponents x 2 x 2 x 3 = x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3= x 2 x 3 x 5=60

14 Step 2 – Write the prime factorizations underneath each other Step 3 – Circle each number that appears in all factorizations 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 = 24 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 = 48 2 x 2 x 3 x 5 = 60 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 = 24 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 = 48 2 x 2 x 3 x 5 = 60

15 Step 4-Multiply the circled numbers. 2 x 2 x 3=12 12 IS YOUR GCF FOR 24, 48, AND 60! Note-If no number appears in all prime factorizations, then GCF is 1.

16 To solve this problem, you could do all of the prime factorizations for the numbers listed. However, 31 is a prime number. Whenever a prime number is in your given set of numbers, and all the other numbers are not multiples of the prime number, then the GCF is always 1. Find the GCF of 12, 16, 31, 44, 68, and 96.

17 Carefully check that you have circled all of the matching prime factors and haven’t circled any non- matching ones. If the set of given numbers does not have any prime factors in common, the GCF is 1. If the set of given numbers only has one prime factor in common, that prime factor is your GCF. To find the GCF for more than two numbers, the prime factors must be present in all prime factorizations. If one (or more) of the numbers in the given set is a prime number, and all of the other numbers are not multiples of the prime number, the GCF is always 1.

19 Least Common Multiple (LCM) – The smallest number that is a multiple of two or more numbers.

20 12 and 80 Begin with two numbers. Step 1 – List several multiples of each number , 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, 84, 96, 108, 120, 132, 144, 156, 168, 180, 192, 204, 216, 228, 240, 252, 264, 276, 288, , 160, 240, 320, 400

21 12 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, 84, 96, 108, 120, 132, 144, 156, 168, 180, 192, 204, 216, 228, 240, 252, 264, 276, 288, , 160, 240, 320, 400 Step 2-Find the smallest number that occurs in both lists. 240 is you LCM for 12 and 80! Note-You will always have to list more multiples of the smaller number.

22 Find the LCM of 16 and , 32, 48, 64, 80, 96, 112, 128, 144, 160, 176, 192, 208, 224, 240, 256, , 104, 156, 208, 260, is your LCM for 16 and 52

27 Step 2 – Write the prime factorizations underneath each other 2 x 2 x 3=12 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 5= 80 Step 3 – Count the times each factor appears in each factorization. 2 x 2 x 3=12 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 5= 80 2 appears twice, 3 appears once 2 appears four times, 5 appears once

28 Step 4-Use the highest occurrence of each number to create a multiplication problem. 2 x 2 x 3=12 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 5= 80 2 appears twice, 3 appears once 2 appears four times, 5 appears once 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 5= 2 appears four times in the second factorization 3 appears once in the first factorization 5 appears once in the second factorization

29 Step 5 – Solve the problem 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 5= is you LCM for 12 and 80!

30 Find the LCM of 12 and 26 Step 1 – Prime factorization 12 2 x 2 x 3 = x 13 =26 Step 1 – Write the prime factorizations underneath each other. 2 x 2 x 3 =12 2 x 13 =26

Find the LCM of 12 and 26 2 x 2 x 3 =12 2 x 13 =26 2 appears twice, 3 appears once 2 appears once, 13 appears once Step 4-Use the highest occurrence of each number to create a multiplication problem. 2 x 2 x 3 x 13= 2 appears twice in the first factorization 3 appears once in the first factorization 13 appears once in the second factorization

32 Step 5 – Solve the problem 2 x 2 x 3 x 13= is you LCM for 12 and 26!

33  The LCM of two prime numbers is always the product of the two numbers.  The basic method is better for smaller numbers.  The advanced method is better for larger numbers.
