The GCF of any set of distinct prime numbers is 1.

That depends on the numbers. The GCF of any two prime numbers is 1.

Yes because 1 is a factor of any prime number. In fact, 1 is always the gcd (same as gcf) of any two distinct prime numbers.

The GCF is 1.

Any consecutive even numbers.

23 and 29 are both prime numbers. The GCF of any two prime numbers is 1.

One

A prime number is a number with exactly 2 divisors: 1 and itself. Because of this, the only common divisor of two distinct prime numbers is 1, thus 1 is the gcf. So the correct answer would be: Given two prime numbers, namely x and y, the gcf is --- 1, if x and y are unequally --- x, if x=y.

Yes.

Any prime number with its multiple.

The GCF of two prime numbers is 1.

61 and 73 are both prime numbers. Prime numbers don't have prime factorizations since they only have one prime factor. The GCF of any set of different prime numbers is 1, since they don't have any prime factors in common.
