# Calculate the Greatest Common Factor or GCF of 28, 19 and 62

Sponsors

The instructions to find the GCF of 28, 19 and 62 are the next:

## 1. Decompose all numbers into prime factors

28 | 2 |

14 | 2 |

7 | 7 |

1 |

19 | 19 |

1 |

62 | 2 |

31 | 31 |

1 |

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

Prime factors of 28 | = | 2^{2} . 7 |

Prime factors of 19 | = | 19 |

Prime factors of 62 | = | 2 . 31 |

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

Common prime factors: None

Common prime factors with the lowest exponent: None

## 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.

Since there are not common prime factors the **GCF** is 1
