 1.   Steps to find GCF of 50 and 75 2.   What is GCF of two numbers? 3.   What are Factors? 4.   Examples of GCF

### Example: Find gcf of 50 and 75

• Factors for 50: 1, 2, 5, 10, 25, 50
• Factors for 75: 1, 3, 5, 15, 25, 75

Hence, GCf of 50 and 75 is 25

#### Definition of GCF

Greatest common factor commonly known as GCF of the two numbers is the highest possible number which completely divides given numbers, i.e. without leaving any remainder. It is represented as GCF (50, 75).

#### Properties of GCF

• Given two numbers 50 and 75, such that GCF is 25 where 25 will always be less than 50 and 75.
• GCF of two numbers is always equal to 1 in case given numbers are consecutive.
• The product of GCF and LCM of two given numbers is equal to the product of two numbers.
• The GCF of two given numbers is either 1 or the number itself if one of them is a prime number.

#### What are factors?

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

#### Properties of Factors

• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 50 and 75 are factors of themselves respectively.
• Every number other than 1 has at least two factors, namely the number itself and 1.
• Every factor of a number is an exact divisor of that number, example 1, 2, 5, 10, 25, 50 are exact divisors of 50 and 1, 3, 5, 15, 25, 75 are exact divisors of 75.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 50 and also of 75.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 50 x 0 = 0 and 75 x 0 = 0.

#### Steps to find Factors of 50 and 75

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 50 and 75 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 25 (half of 50) and 1 upto 37 (half of 75). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
50 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
75 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
50 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
75 ÷ 3 : Remainder = 0
50 ÷ 5 : Remainder = 0
75 ÷ 5 : Remainder = 0
50 ÷ 10 : Remainder = 0
75 ÷ 15 : Remainder = 0
50 ÷ 25 : Remainder = 0
75 ÷ 25 : Remainder = 0
50 ÷ 50 : Remainder = 0
75 ÷ 75 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 50 are 1, 2, 5, 10, 25, and 50

And, Factors of 75 are 1, 3, 5, 15, 25, and 75

#### Examples of GCF

Sammy baked 50 chocolate cookies and 75 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 50 and 75.
GCF of 50 and 75 is 25.

A class has 50 boys and 75 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 50 and 75. Hence, GCF of 50 and 75 is 25.

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

GCF and LCM of two numbers can be related as GCF(50, 75) = ( 50 * 75 ) / LCM(50, 75) = 25.

What is the GCF of 50 and 75?

GCF of 50 and 75 is 25.

Ram has 50 cans of Pepsi and 75 cans of Coca Cola. He wants to create identical refreshment tables that will be organized in his house warming party. He also doesn't want to have any can left over. What is the greatest number of tables that Ram can arrange?

To find the greatest number of tables that Ram can stock we need to find the GCF of 50 and 75. Hence GCF of 50 and 75 is 25. So the number of tables that can be arranged is 25.

Rubel is creating individual servings of starters for her birthday party. He has 50 pizzas and 75 hamburgers. He wants each serving to be identical, with no left overs. Can you help Rubel in arranging the same in greatest possible way?

The greatest number of servings Rubel can create would be equal to the GCF of 50 and 75. Thus GCF of 50 and 75 is 25.

Ariel is making ready to eat meals to share with friends. She has 50 bottles of water and 75 cans of food, which she would like to distribute equally, with no left overs. What is the greatest number of boxes Ariel can make?

The greatest number of boxes Ariel can make would be equal to GCF of 50 and 75. So the GCF of 50 and 75 is 25.

Kamal is making identical balloon arrangements for a party. He has 50 maroon balloons, and 75 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 50 and 75. So the GCF of 50 and 75 is 25.
