To find the LCM and GCF of numbers at least two or more numbers are neeeded.

If the GCF and the LCM are both 144, then so are both of the numbers.

Yes, if you are comparing the number to itself.

The LCM will never be less than the GCF. To be a multiple of both numbers, the LCM will have to be equal to or greater than the larger number. To be a factor of both numbers, the GCF will have to be equal to or less than the smaller number. The only problem comes when you're comparing a number to itself. The LCM of 10 and 10 is 10. The GCF of 10 and 10 is 10.

No, the only way the GCF and LCM of two numbers can be the same is if the numbers are the same.

No, the only way the GCF and LCM of two numbers can be the same is if the numbers are the same.

The product of the GCF and the LCM is the same as the product of the original two numbers. Divide the product of the original numbers by the GCF. The result will be the LCM.
