Definition
 Factors that are shared by two or more whole numbers
are called common factors. The greatest of these
common factors is called the greatest common
factor (GCF).
 Examples:
 Factors of 12: 1,2,3,4,6,12
 Factors of 32: 1,2,4,8,16,32

Common Factors: 1,2,4
 Largest Common Factor = 4 = GCF
