## Study Notes

### Finding HCF (Highest Common Factor)

• To find the HCF of two numbers, begin by dividing the smaller number by the larger number.
• The process involves writing the remainder from the first division next to the larger number.
• Continue the division by taking the previous divisor and dividing it by the last remainder until the remainder is zero.
• The HCF is identified as the last non-zero remainder obtained during this division process.

### Procedure Summary

• Start with the larger number and the smaller number.
• Record the remainder after the first division; this is placed next to the larger number.
• Repeat the division of the last divisor by the current remainder until no more remainders remain.
• The quotient should not be included in identifying the HCF; focus on remainders.

### Important Clarifications

• Multiplying the two numbers does not yield the HCF; instead, the HCF is a derived value through division.
• The remainder from dividing the larger number by the smaller number plays a crucial role in identifying subsequent steps in the process.
