The Common Factors of 60, 36 and 48


Question: 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 prime factorization method

60 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 5 

36 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 

48 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 

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

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

Thus, the common factors of 60, 36, and 48 are 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12.
