GCF(2.8, 4.2, 5.6) = 1.4

## GCF of 2.8, 4.2, 5.6

Enter two or more decimals separated by "commas"

Ex: 0.2, 0.3 or 0.4, 0.5, 0.6

GCF of:

Given numbers are 2.8,4.2,5.6. The highest number of digits after the decimal point in the given case is 1

Thus, in order to get rid of the decimal point we need to multiply them with 10. On doing so, they are as follows

2.8 x 10 = 28

4.2 x 10 = 42

5.6 x 10 = 56

On finding the GCF of 28,42,56 we get the Greatest Common Factor as 14

### Greatest Common Factor (GCF) of 28,42,56 By Common Division

 2 28, 42, 56 7 14, 21, 28 2, 3, 4

∴ So the GCF of the given numbers is 2 x 7 = 14

Divide the GCF by 10 as we multiplied by it to make the given numbers as integers in the initial step.

By dividing the GCF we get = 14/10 = 1.4

Therefore the Greatest Common Factor of 2.8,4.2,5.6 is 1.4
