Sponsors

The instructions to find the GCF of 275 are the next:

## 1. Decompose all numbers into prime factors

275 | 5 |

55 | 5 |

11 | 11 |

1 |

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

Prime factors of 275 | = | 5^{2} . 11 |

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

Common prime factors: 5 , 11

Common prime factors with the lowest exponent: 5^{2}, 11^{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** = 5^{2}. 11^{1} = 275
