The Greatest Common Factor depends upon the numbers for which there are common factors and it is the greatest one of them; it can be greater than 18, for example the greatest common factor of 40 and 100 is 20.

The greatest common factor must be one of the factors of each of the numbers. As the factors of each number cannot be greater than that number, the greatest common factor of a set of numbers cannot be greater than the least number. If this number is not greater than 18 then the greatest common factor of the numbers cannot be greater than 18.

Even if the least number is greater than 18 it is possible that the greatest common factor of a set of numbers is still not greater than 18, for example the greatest common factor of 20, 30 and 50 is 10. Wiki User

No. 18 cannot have a factor higher than itself, so the pair cannot have a common factor higher than 18.   Wiki User

No, because 18 cannot have a factor greater than itself.The factors of 18 are 1, 2, 3, 6, 9, and 18.The factors of 36 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18, and 36.The greatest common factor of two numbers is the greatest whole number by which either number may be wholly divided; the factor and the result should be integers (whole numbers).The greatest factor for any number is itself, as a higher factor would not result in an integer; no number may have a factor higher than itself.No 18 is the greatest common factor
