What is the GCF of 44 and 48?
GCF (Greatest Common Factor) of two numbers, 44 and 48 is the largest possible number that divides the numbers 44 and 48 exactly without any remainder.
Answer: GCF of 44 and 48 is 4
Let us see how to find the GCF of 44 and 48
Explanation:
We can find the GCF by the following two methods:

Listing the Common Factors Method

Long division Method
GCF of 44 and 48 by Listing the Common Factors
The list of factors of 44 and 48 are:
Factors of 44: 1, 2, 4, 11, 22, 44
Factors of 48: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 48
Common factors of 44 and 48: 1, 2, 4
The greatest common factor in the list is 4
GCF of 44 and 48 is 4
GCF of 44 and 48 by Long Division

Step 1: Divide the largest number 48 by the smaller number 44 and check the remainder. Here, the remainder is 4.

Step 2: Make the remainder 4 as the divisor and the divisor 44 as the dividend and perform the long division again.

Step 3: Continue till you get the remainder as 0 and GCF of 44 and 48 is the last divisor obtained.
Since 4 is the last divisor, the GCF of 44 and 48 is 4
You can find the GCF of 44 and 48 in any of the above methods but the solution will be the same.
