# What are the common factors of 60, 36, and 48?

A factor is nothing but a divisor of the given number.

## Answer: The common factors of 60, 36, and 48 are 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12.

Let's prime factorize 60, 36, and 48.

**Explanation:**

According to the prime factorization method,

60 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5

36 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3

48 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3

Hence, the common factors are from a combination of 2 × 2 × 3.

So, the common factors are 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12.
