No, a factor has to be smaller than the number it is a factor of.

5, 7, 11, and everything bigger than 12. Also: 0, -5, -7, -11, and everything smaller than -12.

Yes, negative 12 is smaller than positive 12 by 24.

The number 4

15 1/2 is bigger than 12 but smaller than 34.

12 states are smaller than tennese

Yes, because 2 is a factor of 12.

-6

smaller

No. All factors of a number are less than or equal to it. Therefore the highest factor of 12 is 12. The common factor of 12 with any other number (greater than) 12 cannot be greater than the highest factor of 12 which is 12. Thus no. [The hcf(12, 30) = 6.]

12 is a factor of all of them. Since 12 can't have a factor higher than 12, it must be the GCF.

no. 30 is greater than 12

Yes, 0.12 is smaller then 5.0

Answer: 6Since 12 is not a factor of 42, we can look right away at factors of 12 that are smaller than 12 itself.6 is a factor of 12, and of 24 and of 42.To see right away that it is the GCF, look for a factor of 12 that is bigger than 6,7 is not8 is not9 is not10 is not11 is notSo we are left with 12You could also factor the three numbers24=23 x312=22 x342=7x3x2Now take the smallest common factorswhich are 2 and 3 since the highest power of 2 and 3 in 42 is 1.There is no 7 in 24 or 12 so it is not a common factorThe answer is 2x3=6 as before.What is the gcf of 24 12 and 42?6

You bet. As long as at least one of the factors is a proper fraction. 1/2 x 6 = 3 (product is smaller than one factor) 1/3 x 1/4 = 1/12 (product is smaller than both factors)

Since women are generally smaller than men, their ribs are also generally smaller. Both have the same number of ribs - 12 to each side.

3 is a factor of 12 & a factor of 15, so it's a common factor between 12 & 15. Also, as it's the only common factor between them, in addition to 1 of course, it's the highest common factor between 12 & 15.

12

Factors cannot be larger than the numbers they are compared to. 4 is a factor of 12. 12 is a multiple of 4.

7 is larger than half of 12 so there can be no factor of 12 that is a multiple of 7.
