There is not a least common factor of a single number, such as 48 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 least common factor would be the smallest factor that all the numbers being compared have in common. If there were two or more numbers, the least common factor would be 1.
