If we are trying to find the two numbers less than 50 with the greatest common factor, we need to pick two numbers with a larger difference between them, since the greatest common factor between two numbers cannot be greatest than the difference between the two numbers. To create a large difference, we will want one number to be close in value to 50. And, for the greatest common factor, we want the other number itself to be the greatest common factor. The greatest common factor that the larger number can have (since it is larger and thus cannot be the greatest common factor itself) is the number which is half its value. So, if we choose the even number closest in value to 50, we get 48. Then, if we take half of it, we get 24. The greatest common factor of 24 and 48 is 24. This is the largest possible greatest common factor of a pair of numbers less than 50.

24 is a factor of 48, and 24 is the largest possible factor of itself, so 24 is the greatest common factor.The GCF or Greatest Common Factor would be 24.24 = (2)(2)(2)(3)48 = (2)(2)(2)(3)(2)(2)(2)(2)(3) = 24

24 is not the greatest common factor of any single number. Common factors are the factors that two or more numbers have in common. The greatest common factor is the largest factor that two or more numbers have in common. There cannot be any common factors or a greatest common factor of a single number. There must be at least two number for common factors and a greatest common factor. Example: The greatest common factor of 24 and 48 is 24. The greatest common factor of 60 and 144 is 24. The greatest common factor of 240 and 264 is 24.

Eight is the largest common factor of 24 and 8

No because the largest factor of 24 is itself

24 does.

The highest common factor of 6 and 8 is always 2 - it has to be less than or equal to the smaller of the two numbers.If you mean the highest common multiple of 6 and 8 less than 100, then it is 96.All common multiples of 6 and 8 are multiples of their Lowest Common Multiple.The LCM(6, 8) = 24, thus all common multiples of 6 and 8 are multiples of 24.The largest one less than 100 is:100 ÷ 24 = 41/6⇒ highest multiple of 24 less than 100 is 4 x 24 = 96.

24. The largest remainder is always one less than the number by which you are dividing (the divisor).
