Real Numbers e.g. 324 4 81 = × 1. Prime Factors Every natural number can be written as a product of its prime factors. 2 4 2 3 = × 1176 6 196 = × 2. Highest Common Factor (HCF) 1) Write both numbers in terms of its prime factors 2) Take out the common factors e.g. 1176 and 252 3 2 49 4 = × × × 3 2 3 2 7 = × × 252 4 63 = × 4 9 7 = × × 2 2 2 3 7 = × × 2 2 3 7 HCF = × × 84 = When factorising, remove the lowest power

48 16 3 = × 3. Lowest Common Multiple (LCM) 1) Write both numbers in terms of its prime factors 2) Write down all factors without repeating e.g. 48 and 15 4 2 3 = × 15 3 5 = × 4 2 3 5 LCM = × × 240 = When creating a LCM, use the highest power 4. Divisibility Tests 2: even number 3: digits add to a multiple of 3 4: last two digits are divisible by 4 5: ends in a 5 or 0 6: divisible by 2 and 3 7: double the last digit and subtract from the other digits, answer is divisible by 7 8: last three digits are divisible by 8 9: sum of the digits is divisible by 9 10: ends in a 0 11: sum of even positioned digits = sum of odd positioned digits, or differ by a multiple of 11.
