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.
No but it can be the same as the biggest number as for example the gcf of 30 and 15 is 30
-- Addition always does if both are positive. -- Multiplication does if, for example, both are positive and greater than ' 1 '. -- Exponentiation does if, for example, both the base and exponent are positive and greater than ' 1 ' .
There is none. The GCF is never larger than both numbers. The GCF is never larger than the smaller number.
No, not when negative numbers are involved. For example, -2 is a multiple of both -1 and 1 and is not greater than either.
Answer: It will be greater than both the numbers. Answer: It may be greater, equal, or less than the numbers. Examples: 2 x 3 = 6 (greater than both factors) 0.5 x 0.4 = 0.2 (smaller than both factors)
Both numbers are the same.
Yes & No...For example, 230 is greater than 180, but if you are comparing two numbers that are both less than 100, then the answer is no. For example 83 is greater than 39.
No, it's never greater than the smallest number.
No, it's never greater than the lesser one.
Not at all. For example: gcf(101, 102) = 1 gcf(40, 80) = 40
