There is no greatest common multiple of two (or more) numbers: whatever number you come up with as the greatest common multiple I can always add their lowest common multiple to get an even higher common multiple.

If you meant the LOWEST common multiple (the least number that both divide into with a remainder) then lcm(72, 180) = 360.

If you meant the greatest common FACTOR (the greatest number that divides into both), then gcf(72, 180) = 36.
