# Greatest Common Factors & Least Common Multiples

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

## Overview

We can use what we know about multiplication to find the greatest common factor
(GCF) for a set of numbers. For example:

Find the greatest common factor of 21 and 7.

To find GCF, we need to look at the factors for each number. Factors are numbers
we can multiply together to get other numbers.

We can also use multiplication to find the least common multiple (LCM) of a set of
numbers. For example:

Find the least common multiple of 3 and 4.

To find the LCM, we need to look at the multiples of both numbers. Multiples are
repeated groups of the same amount.
