## Greatest Common Factor of 62 and 24

GCF(62, 24) = 2, Greatest common factor of 62 and 24 is 2. Greatest Common Factor or Greatest Common Divisor of two numbers is the largest integer by which both the numbers can be divided. There are two different methods to calculate Greatest Common Factor of 62 and 24. Greatest Common Factor by prime factorization method and Greatest Common Factor by matching factors method.

### Greatest Common Factor of 62 and 24 by prime factorization method

We will first find the prime factorization of 62 and 24.
Prime Factorization of 62 is 1, 2, 31 and Prime Factorization of 24 is 1, 2, 2, 2, 3.

• Factorize$$(62) =$$ $$1\times 2\times 31$$
• Factorize$$(24) =$$ $$1\times 2\times 2\times 2\times 3$$
Now we need to find any which are common for each number (1, 2) and multiply these numbers together.
$$GCF(62, 24) = 1\times 2 = 2$$.

### Greatest Common Factor of 62 and 24 by matching factors method

List of positive integers factors of 62 leaving a remainder zero is 1, 2, 31, 62
List of positive integers factors of 24 leaving a remainder zero is 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24
As you can see, 2 is the greatest and common number that 62 and 24 divides into.
So the greatest common factor 62 and 24 is 2.
$$GCF(62, 24) = 2$$.
