# What is the greatest common factor of 22 and 44?

The GCF of 22 and 44 is 22.

Since 22 evenly divides 44 and thus is a factor of 44, and is also the largest factor of itself, the greatest common factor is 22.

One way to determine the greatest common factor is to find all the factors of the numbers and compare them.

The factors of 22 are 1, 2, 11, and 22.

The factors of 44 are 1, 2, 4, 11, 22, and 44.

The common factors are 1, 2, 11, and 22. Therefore, the greatest common factor is 22.

The greatest common factor can also be calculated by identifying the common prime factors and multiplying them together.

The prime factors of 22 are 2 and 11.

The prime factors of 44 are 2, 2, and 11.

The prime factors in common are 2 and 11, so the greatest common factor is 2 x 11 = 22. Study guides

Factors of 22 are: 1, 2, 11, 22

Factors of 44 are: 1, 2, 4, 11, 22, 44

The Greatest Common Factor (GCF) is 22.

Here's a tip: Always check to see if the smaller number will divide evenly into the larger number. If it does, it will be the GCF. 22/44 = 1/2 Since 22 is a factor of 44, it is automatically the GCF.  Earn +20 pts
