#### 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 (630, 712).

#### Properties of GCF

• Given two numbers 630 and 712, such that GCF is 2 where 2 will always be less than 630 and 712.
• 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. 630 and 712 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, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 14, 15, 18, 21, 30, 35, 42, 45, 63, 70, 90, 105, 126, 210, 315, 630 are exact divisors of 630 and 1, 2, 4, 8, 89, 178, 356, 712 are exact divisors of 712.
• 1 is a factor of every number. Eg. 1 is a factor of 630 and also of 712.
• Every number is a factor of zero (0), since 630 x 0 = 0 and 712 x 0 = 0.

#### Steps to find Factors of 630 and 712

• Step 1. Find all the numbers that would divide 630 and 712 without leaving any remainder. Starting with the number 1 upto 315 (half of 630) and 1 upto 356 (half of 712). The number 1 and the number itself are always factors of the given number.
630 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
712 ÷ 1 : Remainder = 0
630 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
712 ÷ 2 : Remainder = 0
630 ÷ 3 : Remainder = 0
712 ÷ 4 : Remainder = 0
630 ÷ 5 : Remainder = 0
712 ÷ 8 : Remainder = 0
630 ÷ 6 : Remainder = 0
712 ÷ 89 : Remainder = 0
630 ÷ 7 : Remainder = 0
712 ÷ 178 : Remainder = 0
630 ÷ 9 : Remainder = 0
712 ÷ 356 : Remainder = 0
630 ÷ 10 : Remainder = 0
712 ÷ 712 : Remainder = 0
630 ÷ 14 : Remainder = 0
630 ÷ 15 : Remainder = 0
630 ÷ 18 : Remainder = 0
630 ÷ 21 : Remainder = 0
630 ÷ 30 : Remainder = 0
630 ÷ 35 : Remainder = 0
630 ÷ 42 : Remainder = 0
630 ÷ 45 : Remainder = 0
630 ÷ 63 : Remainder = 0
630 ÷ 70 : Remainder = 0
630 ÷ 90 : Remainder = 0
630 ÷ 105 : Remainder = 0
630 ÷ 126 : Remainder = 0
630 ÷ 210 : Remainder = 0
630 ÷ 315 : Remainder = 0
630 ÷ 630 : Remainder = 0

Hence, Factors of 630 are 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 14, 15, 18, 21, 30, 35, 42, 45, 63, 70, 90, 105, 126, 210, 315, and 630

And, Factors of 712 are 1, 2, 4, 8, 89, 178, 356, and 712

#### Examples of GCF

Sammy baked 630 chocolate cookies and 712 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 630 and 712.
GCF of 630 and 712 is 2.

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(630, 712) = ( 630 * 712 ) / LCM(630, 712) = 2.

What is the GCF of 630 and 712?

GCF of 630 and 712 is 2.
