To find the highest common factor (HCF) of 6 and 12, you can use various methods such as prime factorization, listing factors, or the Euclidean algorithm.
Using prime factorization:

Prime factorize both numbers:
 6 = 2 * 3
 12 = 2^2 * 3

Identify the common prime factors and their lowest powers:
 Common prime factors: 2 and 3
 Lowest powers: 2^1 * 3^1 = 6

Multiply the common prime factors with their lowest powers to find the HCF:
 HCF(6, 12) = 2 * 3 = 6
Therefore, the highest common factor of 6 and 12 is 6.
