Greatest Common Divisor explained here

You have reached us maybe looking for answers to the questions like: GCD of 6, 6 and 12 or what is the highest common factor (HCF) of 6, 6 and 12?

## What is the GCF of 6, 6 and 12?

The first step to find the gcf of 6, 6 and 12 is to list the factors of each number. The factors of 6 are 1, 2, 3 and 6. The factors of 6 are 1, 2, 3 and 6. The factors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 12. So, the Greatest Common Factor for these numbers is 6 because it divides all them without a remainder. Read more about Common Factors below.

## How to find the Greatest Common Factor

### GCF example:

The first step is to find all divisors of each number. For instance, let us find the gcf(6,6,12).

In this case we have:

• The factors of 6 (all the whole numbers that can divide the number without a remainder) are 1, 2, 3 and 6;
• The factors of 6 are 1, 2, 3 and 6;
• The factors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 12.

The second step is to analyze which are the common divisors. It is not difficult to see that the 'Greatest Common Factor' or 'Divisor' for 6, 6 and 12 is 6. The GCF is the largest common positive integer that divides all the numbers (6,6,12) without a remainder.

The GCF is also known as:

• Greatest common divisor (gcd);
• Highest common factor (hcf);
• Greatest common measure (gcm), or
• Highest common divisor
