The LCM of a set of numbers will never be less than the GCF.

The LCM of two numbers will never be less than the GCF.

In that scenario, the GCF is the lesser of the numbers. The LCM is the greater.

To find the GCF and LCM at least two or more numbers must be given

When their GCF is greater than one.

If the GCF of a given pair of numbers is 1, the LCM will be equal to their product. If the GCF is greater than 1, the LCM will be less than their product. Or, stated another way, if the two numbers have no common prime factors, their LCM will be their product.

If their GCF is 1, their LCM is their product. If their GCF is greater than 1, their LCM is less than their product.

2 and 24 satisfy that request. So do 6 and 8.
