## Definition:

• Factors are numbers we can multiply together to get another number.
• Common factors are those that are found in both list of two whole numbers.
• Greatest Common Factor is the largest factor that two or more numbers have in common.
• Multiple is the product result of one number multiplied by another number.
• Least Common Multiple is the smallest number that is a multiple of both numbers.

## Summary:

A number can have many factors:
The factors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 12 …
… because 2 × 6 = 12, or 4 × 3 = 12, or 1 × 12 = 12.

GREATEST COMMON FACTOR

• It is often abbreviated to the GCF.
• If there are no other common factors, then the gcf is 1 (as 1 is a factor of all positive integers.)
• GCF is the same as the Highest Common Factor, and the Greatest Common Divisor.

LEAST COMMON MULTIPLE

• It is often abbreviated to the LCM.
• You can always find a common multiple of two numbers by multiplying them together, but this may not always be the least common multiple (as there may be a smaller common multiple).
