651 | 3 |

217 | 7 |

31 | 31 |

1 |

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

Prime factors of 1302 | = | 2 . 3 . 7 . 31 |

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

Common prime factors: 2 , 3 , 7 , 31

Common prime factors with the lowest exponent: 2^{1}, 3^{1}, 7^{1}, 31^{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^{1}. 7^{1}. 31^{1} = 1302
