Best Answer

The least common factor of two whole numbers is always ' 1 '. This is a big part

of the reason why you'll never be asked to find it.

To find the greatest common factor:

-- List all the factors of the first number.

-- List all the factors of the second number.

-- Create another list, with all of the factors that are on both of the first two lists.

-- The greatest number on the new list is the greatest common factor of the two original numbers.
