I can't give you an example of when that happens because that doesn't ever happen. The GCF of a pair of numbers can't be larger than the smaller number.

Can the greatest common factor be greater than 18?

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.

Why there is no greater natural number?

Sure there are greater numbers. For example, 4 is greater than 3. If you mean "... no greatest number", the reason is that you can always add one more, and get a number that is even greater. Thus, for example, 10 is not the greatest number, because you can add one and get 11. 11 is not the greatest number either, because you can add one and get 12. Etc.


Is the gcf of a pair of numbers ever greater than both numbers and explain with a example?

A number can't have a factor greater than itself, so the GCF of a pair of numbers can't ever be greater than the smaller number. The GCF of 9 and 18 is 9.
