# How do you find sets of two numbers if HCF and LCM are known?

You cannot.

The numbers 2 and 12 have hcf = 2 and LCM = 12

The numbers 4 and 6 also have hcf = 2 and LCM = 12

So if you just knew the hcf and LCM you would not know which of the two was the required pair.

### If 13 is HCF of 2 number whose product is 1690 find the LCM?

To find the LCM, you multiply the numbers together and then divide by the HCF. In this case, we don't know the numbers, but we have the HCF (13) and we have the product of the numbers (1690). Thus all you do is divide 1690 by 13 to get: 1690/13 = 130 And thus the LCM of two numbers whose hcf is 13 and product is 1690 is 130.
