I'm not sure what you mean by lowest common factor, typically math teacher will ask for least common multiple or greatest common factor on your homework.While the lowest common factor is 1, 1 is also the greatest common factor. The least common multiple is 640.

lcm means least common multiple and gcf mean greatest common factor

I think you mean either:greatest common factor of 45 and 100 which is 5orlowest common multiple of 45 and 100 which is 900

Lowest common factor=1Are you sure you don't mean lowest common multiple of highest common factor?Lowest common multiple=96Highest common factor=2

1, but i think you either mean least common multiple (40) or greatest common factor (2)The LCF is 1. The GCF is 2. The LCM is 40. The GCM is infinite.

Are you sure you don't mean least common multiple or greatest common factor? The least common factor, I think, would be 1.

Do you mean greatest common factor or least common multiple. LCF=1 LCM=30 GCF=2

There is no greatest common multiple of any integers as whatever number is said to be it, the lowest common multiple of the numbers can be added to get an even greater common multiple. If you mean least common multiple (the lowest (positive) integer that can be divided by the numbers without a remainder), the answer is 312. If you mean the greatest common factor (the greatest (positive) integer that can divide into the numbers without any remainder). the answer is 4.

The greatest common factor, you mean? That would be 12, since 12 goes into itself once and into 36 three times.

One word would be "common" as in "greatest common factor" or "least common multiple".

The greatest common multiple of any set of integers is infinite.

No.

The greatest common divisor (gcd) = 3. This is probably what you mean. Otherwise, the lowest common multiple (lcm) = 168.

The definition of the greatest common multiple of any two numbers is an infinite number.
