 1.   Steps to find GCF of 49 and 63 2.   What is GCF of two numbers? 3.   What are Factors? 4.   Examples of GCF

### Example: Find gcf of 49 and 63

• Factors for 49: 1, 7, 49
• Factors for 63: 1, 3, 7, 9, 21, 63

Hence, GCf of 49 and 63 is 7

#### How do you explain GCF in mathematics?

GCF or greatest common factor of two or more numbers is defined as largest possible number or integer which is the factor of all given number or in other words we can say that largest possible common number which completely divides the given numbers. GCF of two numbers can be represented as GCF (49, 63).

#### Properties of GCF

• The GCF of two or more given numbers is always less than the given numbers. Eg- GCF of 49 and 63 is 7, where 7 is less than both the numbers.
• If the given numbers are consecutive than GCF is always 1.
• Product of two numbers is always equal to the product of their GCF and LCM.
• The GCF of two given numbers where one of them is a prime number is either 1 or the number itself.

#### How can we define factors?

In mathematics, a factor is a number which divides into another number exactly, without leaving any remainder. A factor of a number can be positive of negative.

#### Properties of Factors

• Every factor of a number is an exact divisor of that number, example 1, 7, 49 are exact divisors of 49 and 1, 3, 7, 9, 21, 63 are exact divisors of 63.
• Every number other than 1 has at least two factors, namely the number itself and 1.
• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 49 and 63 are factors of themselves respectively.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 49 and also of 63.

#### Steps to find Factors of 49 and 63

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 49 and 63 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 24 (half of 49) and 1 upto 31 (half of 63). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
49 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
63 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
49 ÷ 7 : Remainder = 0
63 ÷ 3 : Remainder = 0
49 ÷ 49 : Remainder = 0
63 ÷ 7 : Remainder = 0
63 ÷ 9 : Remainder = 0
63 ÷ 21 : Remainder = 0
63 ÷ 63 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 49 are 1, 7, and 49

And, Factors of 63 are 1, 3, 7, 9, 21, and 63

#### Examples of GCF

Sammy baked 49 chocolate cookies and 63 fruit and nut cookies to package in plastic containers for her friends at college. She wants to divide the cookies into identical boxes so that each box has the same number of each kind of cookies. She wishes that each box should have greatest number of cookies possible, how many plastic boxes does she need?

Since Sammy wants to pack greatest number of cookies possible. So for calculating total number of boxes required we need to calculate the GCF of 49 and 63.
GCF of 49 and 63 is 7.

A class has 49 boys and 63 girls. A choir teacher wants to form a choir team from this class such that the students are standing in equal rows also girls or boys will be in each row. Teacher wants to know the greatest number of students that could be in each row, can you help him?

To find the greatest number of students that could be in each row, we need to find the GCF of 49 and 63. Hence, GCF of 49 and 63 is 7.

What is the difference between GCF and LCM?

Major and simple difference betwen GCF and LCM is that GCF gives you the greatest common factor while LCM finds out the least common factor possible for the given numbers.

What is the relation between LCM and GCF (Greatest Common Factor)?

GCF and LCM of two numbers can be related as GCF(49, 63) = ( 49 * 63 ) / LCM(49, 63) = 7.

What is the GCF of 49 and 63?

GCF of 49 and 63 is 7.

Mary has 49 blue buttons and 63 white buttons. She wants to place them in identical groups without any buttons left, in the greatest way possible. Can you help Mary arranging them in groups?

Greatest possible way in which Mary can arrange them in groups would be GCF of 49 and 63. Hence, the GCF of 49 and 63 or the greatest arrangement is 7.

Kamal is making identical balloon arrangements for a party. He has 49 maroon balloons, and 63 orange balloons. He wants each arrangement tohave the same number of each color. What is the greatest number of arrangements that he can make if every balloon is used?

The greatest number of arrangements that he can make if every balloon is used would be equal to GCF of 49 and 63. So the GCF of 49 and 63 is 7.

Kunal is making baskets full of nuts and dried fruits. He has 49 bags of nuts and 63 bags of dried fruits. He wants each basket to be identical, containing the same combination of bags of nuts and bags of driesn fruits, with no left overs. What is the greatest number of baskets that Kunal can make?

the greatest number of baskets that Kunal can make would be equal to GCF of 49 and 63. So the GCF of 49 and 63 is 7.

To energize public transportation, Abir needs to give a few companions envelopes with transport tickets, and metro tickets in them. On the off chance that he has 49 bus tickets and 63 metro tickets to be parted similarly among the envelopes, and he need no tickets left. What is the greatest number of envelopes Abir can make?

To make the greatest number of envelopes Abir needs to find out the GCF of 49 and 63. Hence, GCF of 49 and 63 is 7.
