To find the greatest common factor (GCF) of 12 and 60, you can use various methods such as prime factorization or listing factors.

Prime Factorization Method:
 Prime factorize both numbers:
 ( 12 = 2^2 \times 3 )
 ( 60 = 2^2 \times 3 \times 5 )
 Identify the common prime factors: ( 2^2 ) and ( 3 ).
 Multiply the common prime factors together: ( 2^2 \times 3 = 12 ).
 The result, 12, is the greatest common factor.
 Prime factorize both numbers:

Listing Factors Method:
 List all the factors of both numbers:
 Factors of 12: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12
 Factors of 60: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15, 20, 30, 60
 Identify the common factors: 1, 2, 3, and 12.
 Among the common factors, the greatest one is 12.
 List all the factors of both numbers:
Either method will lead to the conclusion that the greatest common factor of 12 and 60 is 12.
