Greater Than One number is greater than another number when that number's value is bigger. Example: 10 is greater than 6. In math, we write this as 10 > 6. 
Greatest Common Divisor (GCD) The greatest common divisor is the biggest number that divides into two (or more) given numbers. Examples: The GCD of 6 and 9 is 3. The GCD of 24 and 32 is 8. The GCD of 2and 10 is 2. A common way to write it is GCD ( 6, 9 ) = 3.
