See below

#### Explanation:

To find the GCF, you must break the constants of the numbers apart to prime numbers.

Now, you must look to see what they have in common. So, the equations both have one

So now you are left with

Both the equations have two, that also goes into the GCF.

You are left with 13 and 19 now. Since those are not common, those would go into your ending equation. Thus, your GCF is
