What is the HCF of 2 and 4?
HCF of two or more numbers is the largest possible number which divides the given numbers exactly without any remainder.
Answer: HCF of 2 and 4 is 2
Let us see how to find the HCF of 2 and 4
Methods to Find HCF of 1 and 4
We can find the HCF by the following methods
- Prime factorization Method
- Long Division Method
Method 1: HCF of 2 and 4 by Prime Factorization
Let us represent 2 and 4 as a product of its prime numbers
Common factors = 2, therefore, HCF of 2 and 4 is 2
Method 2: HCF of 2 and 4 by Long Division Method
- Step 1: Divide 4 by 2 and check the remainder.
- Step 2: since we got the remainder as 0, two is the HCF of 2 and 4.
