### The sum of three consecutive even numbers is 36 find the greatest one?

Call the smallest number x, which makes the next two consecutive even numbers x+2 and x+4. The sum of these three numbers is 36, so: x + (x + 2) + (x + 4) = 36 3x + 6 = 36 3x = 36 - 6 = 30 x = 10 So the three numbers are 10, 12, and 14, which indeed total 36. So the largest number is 14. Note that the question was…

### Is 36 and 62 prime or composite?

They are both composite because they are even. They are composite numbers because 36 can be formed by 6x6 and 72 can be formed by 6x6x2. Since prime numbers means that they are only divisible by 1 and itself, the numbers are not prime numbers. Also, any number greater than 1 is either a composite or prime number, so they are composite numbers.

### What does 30 go into that 36 goes into?

To find the common multiples of two numbers, you first need to express them as the product of their prime factors. In this case, 30 and 36 can be written as: 30 = 2x3x5 36 = 2x2x3x3 The next step is to identify any common factors. In this case both numbers have a 2 and a 3 as a prime factor, so one of each can be discarded. Take every other prime factor (5, 2…

### How do you get the gcf of 36 and 210?

First, you make a factor tree for both 36 and 210 and find the prime factorization of both numbers. 36: 2x2x3x3 210:2x3x5x7 Then, you circle the numbers that appear in both factorizations. (I'll make them bold.) 36: 2x3x2x3 210: 2x3x5x7 Lastly, you multiply the 2 numbers that you circled together (only one pair of the 2 numbers; don't multiply 2x3x2x3, just 2x3). 2x3=6. The GCF of 36 and 210 is 6.

### How do you reduce 100 over 360?

To reduce a fraction, you need to find common factors for the two numbers. Think of numbers that you can divide into both 100 and 360. Both numbers are a multiple of 10 because they end in zero. To start, let's divide both numbers by ten to get 10 over 36. Let's keep going: both numbers have two as a factor because they're both even. When we divide both 10 and 36 by two, we…
