A factor is a divisor - a number that will evenly divide into another number. The greatest common factor of two or more numbers is the largest factor that both numbers have in common.

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

The factors of 93 are 1, 3, 31, and 93.

The factors of 124 are 1, 2, 4, 31, 62, and 124.

The common factors are 1 and 31. Therefore, the greatest common factor is 31.
