### What is Meant by the Common Factor?

In mathematics, the factors are defined as the numbers, which are multiplied together to get the original number. While finding the factors of the numbers, some factors of the numbers are found to be the same. Then the common numbers are considered as the common factor. For example, 16 and 24 are the two numbers

The factors of 16 are: 1, 2, 4, 8, 16

The factors of 24 are: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24

From the factors of the above two numbers, 1, 2, 4, 8 are common in both the numbers. Hence, 1, 2, 4 and 8 are considered to be the common factors of 16 and 24.
