No but it can be the same as the biggest number as for example the gcf of 30 and 15 is 30

A number can't have a factor greater than itself, so the GCF of a pair of numbers can't ever be greater than the smaller number. The GCF of 9 and 18 is 9.

No, it's never greater than the smallest number.

I can't give you an example of when that happens because that doesn't ever happen. The GCF of a pair of numbers can't be larger than the smaller number.
