Definition

Let $S$ be a finite set of integers, that is:

$S = \left\{{x_1, x_2, \ldots, x_n: \forall k \in \N^*_n: x_k \in \Z}\right\}$


Let $c \in \Z$ such that $c$ divides all the elements of $S$, that is:

$\forall x \in S: c \mathop \backslash x$


Then $c$ is a common divisor (or common factor) of all the elements in $S$.
