No, the GCF is the lesser of the numbers.

No, the lesser.

The least common factor for two numbers is always one. The least common multiple for two numbers which have no common factors greater than one is their product.

All numbers with a least common multiple, have that multiple as a factor.

The greater number becomes the least common multiple of the 2 numbers. Ex: 2 and 10. 2 is a factor of 10 and hence 10 is the LCM of 2 and 10

Not with negative numbers. -10 is a multiple of -2.

When they have a factor in common greater than one.

No, it is not a factor of either of the numbers.

Yes, the least common multiple of two numbers is always divisible by those numbers' greatest common factor.

Never.

Use distribution to find the least or greater common factor

There is no answer. There cannot be a lowest common multiple of a single number, such as 30, because "common multiple" means a multiple that two or more numbers have in common. Likewise, there cannot be a highest common factor of a single number, such as 3, because "common factor" means a factor that two or more numbers have in common.

A common factor: 1. A common multiple: 30.

The Greatest Common Factor depends upon the numbers for which there are common factors and it is the greatest one of them; it can be greater than 18, for example the greatest common factor of 40 and 100 is 20. The greatest common factor must be one of the factors of each of the numbers. As the factors of each number cannot be greater than that number, the greatest common factor of a set of numbers cannot be greater than the least number. If this number is not greater than 18 then the greatest common factor of the numbers cannot be greater than 18. Even if the least number is greater than 18 it is possible that the greatest common factor of a set of numbers is still not greater than 18, for example the greatest common factor of 20, 30 and 50 is 10.

No, the greatest common factor is never greater than the smallest number. The greatest common factor is the largest integer that divides evenly into all of the numbers listed.

Their product.

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.

Factors go into numbers, numbers go into multiples.

Do you mean lowest common multiple? If so it is the smallest multiple that the two numbers have in common

When the numbers have a common factor (other than 1).

Factor both numbers. Select the factors they both have in common. Choose the largest (greatest) one.

The least common factor of any set of numbers is 1.

No.

Yes it is.
