WHAT IS THE GREATEST COMMON FACTOR OF 52 AND 4

The GCF is 4.
There is one 4 in 4
There are thirteen 4’s in 52

Well I don’t know !
Let’s work on it together and find out:

The factors of  52  are  1,  2,  4,  13,  26, and  52.

The factors of  4  are  1,  2,  and  4.

The common factors (factors on both lists) are  1,  2,  and  4.

The biggest one of those is  4.

Interesting fact:
If the smaller number is a factor of the bigger number,
then it’s also the greatest common factor of both numbers.

Perfect example: 
4  is a factor of  52, so  4  is the greatest common factor
of  4  and  52.
