To write the sum of the numbers 24 and 40 as the product of their greatest common factor (GCF) and another sum, first find the GCF of 24 and 40, which is 8. Then, express 24 and 40 as the product of their GCF and another factor:

24 = 8 * 3 40 = 8 * 5

Now, rewrite the sum of 24 and 40 as the product of their GCF and another sum:

24 + 40 = (8 * 3) + (8 * 5) = 8 * (3 + 5) = 8 * 8

So, the sum of the numbers 24 and 40 can be written as the product of their GCF (8) and another sum (8).
