In this tutorial the instructor shows how to calculate the greatest common factor, or GCF. While computing greatest common factor, you are pulling out the smallest exponents of any common factors along with the factor. Finding the greatest common factor is similar to finding the least common multiple. When given any numbers to find the greatest common factor, the first step in the general procedure to be followed is to break each number down into its factors. You need to break down the number into the most simple terms. Now start pulling out the common terms from all the numbers and finally multiply all these common terms which gives you the greatest common factor.
