Here are few quick notes for solving HCF & LCM questions –

  • HCF (Highest Common factor) or GCD (Greatest Common Divisor) – The HCF of two or more numbers is the greatest number that divides each of them exactly.
  • LCM (Lowest common multiple) – The least number which is exactly divisible by each one of the given numbers is called thier LCM.
  • Product of two numbers = Product of their Highest Common factor x Lowest common multiple
  • Co-Primes – Two numbers are said to be co-primes if their HCF is 1
  • HCF = Highest Common factor of Numerators/ Lowest common multiple of Denominators
  • LCM = LCM of Numerators/HCF of Denominators
