The GCF is 16.

The GCF of 24 and 30 is 6. The distributive property states that 24 x 30 = (20 x 30) + (4 x 30)

You need at least two numbers to find a GCF.

16 + 28 = (4 x 4) + (4 x 7) = 4 x 11 = 44

Using my knowledge of greatest common factors and the distributive property, I can tell that 45 + 63 is equal to 9(5 + 7) or 9 x 12, which is 108. Of course, I could also tell that from my knowledge of addition.

The GCF of 24 and 64 is 8. You use the distributive property to show another way to write the sum. 8(3 + 8)

It is not possible to give a sensible answer to this question. The greatest common factor (GCF) refers to a factor that is COMMON to two or more numbers. You have only one number in the question! It does not matter whether you use the distributive or any other property; something that does not exist cannot be found!

The GCF is 18. The Distributive property states that 36 x (50 + 4) = (36 x 50) + (36 x 4)

Since 18 is a factor of 36, it is automatically the GCF of this problem.

An unnecessary one. 42 + 96 = 138
