Question

Highst common factor of 24,40,56

1 Answer

  • Your answer is 8 because :

    24 = 2 * 12 = 2 * 2 * 6 = 2 * 2 * 2 * 3
    40 = 2 * 20 = 2 * 2 * 10 = 2 * 2 * 2 * 5
    56 = 2 * 28 = 2 * 2 * 14 = 2 * 2 * 2 * 7

    The common prime factor in all is 2 three times so 2 * 2 * 2 = 8.

    Hope this helps :)
