A letter in math can stand for any number

Math is an abbreviation of mathematics: it is not an acronym. So the h does not stand for anything!

It means the highest common factor of two numbers or more. For example the HCF of 18 and 27 is 9 18=2×3×3 27=3×3×3 The common factor is 3×3=9

HCF means the highest common factor of two or more numbers. LCM means the lowest common multiple of two or more numbers.

The highest common factor (HCF) of two numbers is the largest positive integer that divides both numbers without leaving a remainder. To find the HCF of 374 and 918, you can use the Euclidean algorithm. First, divide the larger number by the smaller number: 918 รท 374 = 2 with a remainder of 170. Then, divide the previous divisor (374) by the remainder (170): 374 รท 170 = 2 with a remainder of 34. Continue this process until you reach a remainder of 0. The last non-zero remainder is the HCF. So, the HCF of 374 and 918 is 34.
