The Greatest Common Factor depends upon the numbers for which there are common factors and it is the greatest one of them; it can be greater than 18, for example the greatest common factor of 40 and 100 is 20.

The greatest common factor must be one of the factors of each of the numbers. As the factors of each number cannot be greater than that number, the greatest common factor of a set of numbers cannot be greater than the least number. If this number is not greater than 18 then the greatest common factor of the numbers cannot be greater than 18.

Even if the least number is greater than 18 it is possible that the greatest common factor of a set of numbers is still not greater than 18, for example the greatest common factor of 20, 30 and 50 is 10.
