How to find the HCF of 24 and 36?

Given numbers: 24, 36
Prime factorization of 24 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 = 23 × 3
Prime factorization of 36 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 = 22 × 32
We know that HCF is the product of the smallest power of each common prime factor in the numbers.
HCF of (24, 36) = 2 × 2 × 3 = 12
Therefore, the HCF of 24 and 36 is 12.
