# GCD1 Understanding Common Divisors

In this video, we learn how the meaning of common divisors. We also learn some of the properties of divisors of numbers. After watching the video, answer the exercise below. In the discussion, we will also learn about prime and composite numbers.

**Practice 1: **List the divisors of the following numbers.

a.) 9

b.) 15

c.) 48

d.) 81

e.) 120

**Practice 2: **List the common divisors of the following pairs of numbers.

a.) 16 and 24

b.) 48 and 96

c.) 35 and 50

d.) 12 and 18

e. 16 and 36

The answers to the exercises above are available below this text. Answer the exercises above before scrolling. You may also want to proceed to the **next lesson** which discusses Greatest Common Divisor (GCD).
