How to find Highest Common Factor?
The abbreviation for this phrase is Highest Common Factor. The HCF of two numbers is the highest factor that may divide two integers equally. It is possible to evaluate HCF using two or more numbers. It is the most effective divisor for any pair of numbers that may evenly or totally divide the entered values.
There are two ways we can determine the HCF of any given set of numbers:
- by prime factorization method
- by division method
Step 1: procedures for calculating the HCF of any given set of numbers.
Divide the larger number by the smaller number, like in Larger Number/Smaller Number, in step one.
Step 2: Deduct the residual from the divisor in step 1.
The remainder divisor in Step 1
Step 3: Deduct the residue one more time from the divisor in step 2.
The remainder divisor in Step 2
Step 4: Continue until there is no longer any money available.
Step 5: The previous step's divisor is the HCF.
If the HCF of 65 and 117 is expressible in form 65m - 117, then the value of m is 4. (a) True (b) False
The statement “If the HCF of 65 and 117 is expressible in form 65m - 117, then the value of m is 4.” is false. HCF or Highest Common Factor is the greatest number that divides each of two or more numbers. HCF is also called the Greatest Common Measure (GCM) and Greatest Common Divisor(GCD).
