There's only 4.

Only the number 1.

Small words make a difference. No prime number "has" a factor of 16. But 2 is the only prime number that "is" a factor of 16.

24 = 16

No. That is impossible. A prime number is defined as a number that factors only to itself and the number one. A prime number MUST only be "divisible" by 1 and itself to get an integer number. For example, 7 only has 2 factors - 1 and 7. Square numbers are divisible by a number other than 1 and itself. For example, 16 has the factors 1, 2, 4, 8, and 16. 4 squared = 16

The HCF of both numbers is 1
