201 | 3 |

67 | 67 |

1 |

## 2. Write all numbers as the product of its prime factors

Prime factors of 1206 | = | 2 . 3^{2} . 67 |

## 3. Choose the common prime factors with the lowest exponent

Common prime factors: 2 , 3 , 67

Common prime factors with the lowest exponent: 2^{1}, 3^{2}, 67^{1}

## 4. Calculate the Greatest Common Factor or GCF

Remember, to find the GCF of several numbers you must multiply the common prime factors with the lowest exponent.

**GCF** = 2^{1}. 3^{2}. 67^{1} = 1206
