The common factor calculator is an easy-to-use, time-saving tool. It swiftly determines the common factors of any two non-decimal numbers. What more could a math enthusiast want? And that's not all; we will also be discussing some important topics in this article.

• How to find the common factor?
• What are the uses of the greatest common factor?

## Common factor calculator

The common factor calculator is an intuitive tool that allows you to calculate the factors that are common between any two numbers.

All you have to do is input the two numbers that you want to determine the common factors for. You will have the list of factors for both the numbers and the ones that are common between them.
That's it; it couldn't get any simpler than that.

For instance, you enter $54$ and $72$. Right off the bat, the tool displays the common factors as $1, 2, 3, 6, 9, 18$. But that is not all. A list of factors for both numbers is also displayed.

## Uses of common factors

Common factors are essential in mathematics because they help to simplify equations and expressions. They are also used to find the greatest common factor (GCF) of two or more numbers, which is the largest number that divides evenly into each of the numbers. Common factors can also be used to find the least common multiple (LCM) of two or more numbers, the smallest number that is a multiple of all of the numbers.

💡 Once you estimate the highest common factor among the common factors of numbers, deciding how to divide a family inheritance between siblings becomes easier than you would have expected. It also helps divide a pizza between a group of people and calculate the amount of money each person in a family should contribute to a shared expense.
