Highest Common Factor (HCF) / Greatest Common Divisor (GCD)

[ Prime Factorisation Method ] [ Successive Division Method ]

Definition :-

The Highest Common Factor (HCF) is the greatest number which divides two or more number completely; without leaving any remainder.
It is also known as Greatest Common Divisor (GCD).

There are two methods of calculating HCF / GCD :-

1. Prime Factorisation Method

2. Successive Division Method

Both these methods are discussed in detail in the above link.
