sold to and held by the shareholders of a company. Includes stock
that has been repurchased by the company. Does NOT include shares
that have been retired.

### Can the greatest common factor be greater than 18?

The Greatest Common Factor depends upon the numbers for which
there are common factors and it is the greatest one of them; it can
be greater than 18, for example the greatest common factor of 40
and 100 is 20.
The greatest common factor must be one of the factors of each of
the numbers. As the factors of each number cannot be greater than
that number, the greatest common factor of a set of numbers cannot
be greater than the least number. If this number is not greater
than 18 then the greatest common factor of the numbers cannot be
greater than 18.
Even if the least number is greater than 18 it is possible that
the greatest common factor of a set of numbers is still not greater
than 18, for example the greatest common factor of 20, 30 and 50 is
10.

### What is difference between common stock and treasury stock of a corp.?

Common stock are the shares issued by a company to the
public.
Treasury stock are the common shares that the same company has
bought back from the public. Companies tend to to do this when they
want to restrict the number of total outstanding shares in the
market. Another reason to buy back stocks is to hopefully sell them
back to the market when the price per stock increases.
