Which positive integers less than 12 are relatively prime to 12?
Prime numbers are the numbers that have only two factors, that are, 1 and the number itself
Answer: The numbers less than 12 relatively prime to 12 are 5,7 and 11.
A number is said to be relative prime or co-prime to another number if both the numbers has a GCF of 1
So for numbers less than 12, we know that all even numbers will have a GCF of 2 with 12.
Let's check the odd numbers.
As 12 is divisble by 3, only 3 numbers are left to be relatively prime.
The numbers are 5,7 and 11.
