### What are the greatset common multiples of 75 90 52and 26?

The greatest common multiples of any numbers is infinity. If you meant LEAST common multiple: 75 = 3x5x5 90 = 2x3x3x5 52 = 2x2x13 25 = 2x13 The least common multiple is therefore: 2x2x3x3x5x5x13 = 11,700 If you meant greatest common factor ... the answer would be 1
