#### 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 (525, 735).

#### Properties of GCF

• The GCF of two or more given numbers is always less than the given numbers. Eg- GCF of 525 and 735 is 105, where 105 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.

#### 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

• Every factor of a number is an exact divisor of that number, example 1, 3, 5, 7, 15, 21, 25, 35, 75, 105, 175, 525 are exact divisors of 525 and 1, 3, 5, 7, 15, 21, 35, 49, 105, 147, 245, 735 are exact divisors of 735.
• Every number other than 1 has at least two factors, namely the number itself and 1.
• Each number is a factor of itself. Eg. 525 and 735 are factors of themselves respectively.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 525 and also of 735.

#### Steps to find Factors of 525 and 735

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 525 and 735 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 262 (half of 525) and 1 upto 367 (half of 735). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
525 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
735 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
525 ÷ 3 : Remainder = 0
735 ÷ 3 : Remainder = 0
525 ÷ 5 : Remainder = 0
735 ÷ 5 : Remainder = 0
525 ÷ 7 : Remainder = 0
735 ÷ 7 : Remainder = 0
525 ÷ 15 : Remainder = 0
735 ÷ 15 : Remainder = 0
525 ÷ 21 : Remainder = 0
735 ÷ 21 : Remainder = 0
525 ÷ 25 : Remainder = 0
735 ÷ 35 : Remainder = 0
525 ÷ 35 : Remainder = 0
735 ÷ 49 : Remainder = 0
525 ÷ 75 : Remainder = 0
735 ÷ 105 : Remainder = 0
525 ÷ 105 : Remainder = 0
735 ÷ 147 : Remainder = 0
525 ÷ 175 : Remainder = 0
735 ÷ 245 : Remainder = 0
525 ÷ 525 : Remainder = 0
735 ÷ 735 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 525 are 1, 3, 5, 7, 15, 21, 25, 35, 75, 105, 175, and 525

And, Factors of 735 are 1, 3, 5, 7, 15, 21, 35, 49, 105, 147, 245, and 735

#### Examples of GCF

Sammy baked 525 chocolate cookies and 735 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 525 and 735.
GCF of 525 and 735 is 105.

A class has 525 boys and 735 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 525 and 735. Hence, GCF of 525 and 735 is 105.

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.
