What is the HCF of 2 and 3?
The highest common factor, also known as the greatest common factor, of two or more numbers, is the largest possible number that divides the given numbers without leaving any remainder.
Answer: HCF of 2 and 3 is 1
Let us see how to find the HCF of 2 and 3
Methods to Find HCF of 2 and 3
We can find the HCF by the following methods

Prime Factorization

Long division Method
Method1: HCF of 2 and 3 by Prime Factorization
2 and 3 are coprime numbers Their common factor is 1.
HCF of 2 and 3 is 1
Method2: HCF of 2 and 3 by Long Division Method
Let us divide 3 by 2 , we get a remainder 1 , now keeping 1 as divisor, and 2 as dividend , we get the remainder 0 . the last divisor is the HCF of the given numbers . In this case it is 1.
HCF of 2 and 3 is 1
Therefore, HCF of 2 and 3 is 1.
