**Begin by writing the prime factorization of each number.**

EXAMPLE 2 Using Prime Factorization to Find the GCF Find the greatest common factor of 180 and 126 using prime factorization. Begin by writing the prime factorization of each number. 180 = 2 3 5 126 = 2 3 7 ANSWER The common prime factors of 180 and 126 are 2, 3, and 3. So, the greatest common factor is = 18.

EXAMPLE 2 Using Prime Factorization to Find the GCF ANSWER The common prime factors of 180 and 126 are 2, 3, and 3. So, the greatest common factor is = 18.

3
**Tell whether the numbers are relatively prime.**

EXAMPLE 3 Identifying Relatively Prime Numbers Tell whether the numbers are relatively prime. Factors of 28: 1, 2, 4, 7, 14, 28 Factors of 45: 1, 3, 5, 9, 15, 45 The GCF is 1. a. 28, 45 ANSWER Because the GCF is 1, 28 and 45 are relatively prime. Factors of 15: 1, 3, 5, 15 Factors of 51: 1, 3, 17, 51 The GCF is 3. b. 15, 51 ANSWER Because the GCF is 3, 15 and 51 are not relatively prime.
