There are two methods of finding the H.C.F. of a given set of numbers :
Finding the H.C.F. of more than two numbers : Suppose we have to find the H.C.F. of three numbers. Then, H.C.F. of [(H.C.F. of any two) and (the third number)] gives the H.C.F. of three given numbers.
Similarly, the H.C.F. of more than three numbers may be obtained.
