# Java Program to Find HCF of Two Numbers

Hello Shouters !! Today we will understand the Java program to Find HCF of two numbers.

We will use two methods to find the HCF of Two Numbers, the first one will be without taking the function and the other one will be using the functions.

## What is HCF?

HCF stands for Highest Common Factor and is the highest common divisor between two numbers. In simple terms, if we have two numbers then the biggest number that can divide both the numbers completely is know as the HCF of the number.

## 1. First Method- Without Function

In this method, we will only take two numbers and will do the manipulation of the data to get the HCF.

Output – Enter the first number 90 Enter the Second Number 75 HCF of the given numbers is 15

## 2. Second Method- Using Functions

In this method, we will be using a function to calculate the HCF of the two numbers.

Output – Enter the first number 90 Enter the Second Number 75 HCF of the given numbers is 15
