48 is a composite number because it has factors other than 1 and itself. It is not a Prime number.

The 10 factors of 48 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, and 48. The factor pairs of 48 are 1 x 48, 2 x 24, 3 x 16, 4 x 12, and 6 x 8.

The proper factors of 48 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, and 24 or,

if the definition you are using excludes 1, they are 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, and 24. The prime factors of 48 are 2, 2, 2, 2, and 3.

Note: There is repetition of these factors, so if the prime factors are being listed instead of the prime factorization, usually only the distinct prime factors are listed.

The 2 distinct prime factors (listing each prime factor only once) of 48 are 2 and 3.

The prime factorization of 48 is 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 or, in index form (in other words, using exponents), 24 x 3.

NOTE: There cannot be common factors, a greatest common factor, or a least common multiple because "common" refers to factors or multiples that two or more numbers have in common.
