What is the greatest common multiple of 16 and 24?

There is no greatest common multiple. Ever! If x were the greatest common multiple, then what about 2x? Since x is a multiple of 16 and 24 then so also is 2x, so that 2x is a COMMON multiple. And it would certainly be greater that x. So 2x is a common multiple that is greater than the greatest common multiple. What?!
