### What is the greater common factor of 40 and 30?

Firstly, a factor of a number is another number that you can
divide it by and get a whole number. The factors of 40 are:
1,2,4,5,8,10,20 and 40
The factors of 30 are: 1,2,3,5,6,10,15 and 30
Now, to find the GREATEST common factor of 40 and 30 , we would
have to find the biggest number that goes into both 40 AND 30.
After reading the factors above, we can see that 10 is the highest
number that goes into both numbers, therefore 10 is the greatest
common factor of 40 and 30.
