No. It can be neither. HCF is Highest Common Factor; a factor of a number is a number which divides into it with no remainder. Thus all factors are less than or equal to the number. 72 is greater than 6, therefore it cannot be a factor of 6, nor the Highest Common Factor of 6 and another number. LCM is Lowest Common Multiple; a multiple of a number is that number times some other number. Thus all multiples are greater than or equal to the number. 72 is less than 252, therefore it cannot be a multiple of 252, nor can it be the Lowest Common Multiple of 252 and another number. However, 6 is a factor of 72, thus 6 could be the HCF of 72 and another number, eg hcf(30, 72) = 6. But 252 is not a multiple of 72, so 252 could not be a LCM of 72 and some other number.

Because 6 is a factor of 72 and also because 72 is a multiple of 6.

False. 72 is a multiple of 6.

6 is not a prime number but it is a factor of 72

Because 6 times 12 is 72. A number, when multiplied by another number, is a factor of the new number.

6 is both a factor and a multiple of 6.

6, 12, 18, 24, 36, 72

10 is a multiple of 6 and a factor of 60 :)

6, 12, 18, 24, 36, 72

Any multiple of 6 has 6 as a factor.

All sets of numbers have an LCF of 1, so I'll assume you meant to write least common multiple. 6 and 72 have a GCF of 6 and an LCM of 72. So do 18 and 24.

No, 6 is a factor of 72.

The number 8 is the factor of 18. But 8 is not a multiple of 6.

6 is a factor of 30 and a multiple of 2.

Six is both a factor and a multiple of 6.

6, 18, 30, 90

120. 6 is a factor of both. 72 a multiple of 24. 90 is a multiple of 30. 5(24)=120. 4(30)=120. TL;DR: d

The Least Common Multiple of two numbers is equal to their product divided by their greatest common factor.The greatest common factor of 72 and 42 is 6, so their Least Common Multiple is 72 * 42 / 6 = 504.

The number 12 has 4 and 6 as factors so 12 is a multiple of 4 and 6.

72 Since 72 is a multiple of 6, 72 is also the LCM of 6 and 72

What number between 55 and 101 that is a multiple of 3 6 8?

Factors divide into a number. A number divides into multiples. 3 is a factor of 6. 12 is a multiple of 6. 6 is both a factor and a multiple of 6.

Divide 6 into 72. If the answer has no remainder, 6 is a factor.

6 and 72, respectively.

6
