Point to Ponder: LCM and HCF

We have talked about Highest Common Factor (HCF) of two or more numbers and Lowest Common Multiple (LCM) of two or more numbers.

Why don't we talk about the Lowest Common Factor or the Highest Common Multiple of two or more numbers?

  2. it will be very hard to calculate as the concepts are changed.

  3. The Highest common Factor is more than the Lowest common multiple and the lowest common factor is lower than the Highest common factor so the results of the answer can be inaccurate.

  4. LCF: The lowest common factor will definitely be 1 as 1 is a factor of all and it is the only number that allow is to times itself
    HCM: It is very difficult to find as the number can go up to a millions and millions
    ( It is based on my thoughts)

  5. it is because Lcf is always 1 and Hcm is always infinite as a number can be multiplied forever and all numbers can be multiplied by 1 and itself.

  7. The lowest common factor is 1 as all numbers have a factor which is 1x itself.
    There is no HCM as numbers are infinite and there will always be another multiple after the next.

  8. lcf will always be 1 and hcm can never be found

  9. The lowest common factor of all whole numbers is 1 and the highest common multiple is an infinite number whatever numbers are compared.

  10. LCF will always be 1 as 1 can be divide anything

  11. LCF will always be 1 as any number can be divided by it.
    HCF is harder as you might get a infinitive number.
