The Greatest Common Divisor (GCD) of 5 and 30 is the largest positive integer that divides both 5 and 30. Mathematically, the problem we are solving is:
To solve the problem, we will list all the positive integers (divisors) that can be divided into 5 and 30. We will then compare the lists of divisors to find the greatest divisor they have in common.
Divisors of 5:
1 and 5.
Divisors of 30:
1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15, and 30.
When we compare the lists of divisors above, we see that the largest number they have in common is 5. Thus, the Greatest Common Divisor (GCD) of 5 and 30 is:
GCD(5,30) = 5
