Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Greatest common factor(GCF) is the greatest factor that divides two or more numbers.To find the GCF,you list all the prime factors of each number.

therefore prime factors of 44 =2*2*11

prime factors of 99=3*3*11

there is only 11 that is common in both numbers.Therefore the GCF=11
