  1. Factors of 42:
    1, 42, 2, 21, 3, 14, 6, 7

    Factors of 12:
    1, 12, 2, 6, 3, 4

    What is the largest common factor?

  2. 3 is the largest common factor. Therefore, there will be 3 groups with 4 coaches and 14 players. You have to read the question carefully. When I first read the question, I thought I needed to have equal player to coach ratio in each group. I went crazy b/c I have player left over. When I read it several times, I realized I needed to have the same number of coaches per group and the same number of player per group. So the answer to the second part of the questions is 4 coaches and 14 players in each of the 3 groups.

  8. 6 Groups, 2 Coaches, and 7 Players

    The GCF of 12 & 42 is 6.

    What I did was divide 12 and 42 by 6.

    12 divided by 6 is 2. So there are 2 coaches
    42 divided by 6 is 7. So there are 7 players
