What is the HCF of 17, 23, and 29?
The largest possible number which divides the given numbers exactly without any remainder is called HCF (highest common factor) or GCF (greatest common factor). Some times it is also termed as GCD (greatest common divisor)
Answer: HCF of 17, 23, and 29 is 1.
Let's find the HCF of 17, 23, and 29
Here all the given numbers are prime numbers. They do not have any factors other than 1 and itself. More over all the given numbers are co-primes.
Therefore 17, 23, and 29 do not any common factor except 1.
So, HCF(17,23,29) is 1
Thus, HCF of 17, 23, and 29 is 1.
