# 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

**Explanation:**

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.
