Any positive number can be a GCF. But for each separate set of numbers, there can only be one.

One

When the smaller one is a factor of the larger one. (That also means the larger one is a multiple of the smaller one.) The smaller number is the GCF of both.

It is not possible to give a sensible answer to this question. The highest common factor (HCF) refers to a factor that is COMMON to two or more numbers. You have only one number in the question!

11 + 397 + 593 = 1,001 This is just one combination there are many more

Yes, if one of the numbers is a factor of the other.

Yes, if one of the numbers is a factor of the other.

GCF - Greatest Common Factor (GCF is always smaller or equal to at least one of the numbers) LCM - Least Common Multiple (LCM is always greater or equal to at least one of the numbers)

No; two numbers can have only 1 GCF.

No. The GCF can only be equal to or less than the smallest number in the set.

Yes, because the GCF of 1 and any other number is 1.

The GCF can be equal to the smaller number if the smaller number is a factor of the larger one. The GCF can be equal to both numbers if they are the same number. The GCF of 10 and 10 is 10.
