There is neither a greatest common factor nor common factors of a single number, such as 336, because there cannot be any form of common factor without two or more numbers to compare. Common factors are factors that the numbers being compared have in common. The greatest common factor is the largest factor that all the numbers being compared have in common. Thus, since there are not two or more numbers to compare, there are neither common factors nor a greatest common factor.

The factors of 336 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 12, 14, 16, 21, 24, 28, 42, 48, 56, 84, 112, 168, and 336.

The prime factors of 336 are 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, and 7.

Examples:

The common factors of 9 and 336 are 1 and 3; the greatest common factor is 3.

The common factors of 32 and 336 are 1, 2, 4, 8, and 16; the greatest common factor is 16.
